feedback from one of the participant:

“Hello, I evaluate it by grade 1 🙂 It was my first experience and I can not complain about anything. Everything was done well, whether it was an organization (airport transfer, accommodation, food, excursions), but also activities related to the topic of youth participation (games, presentations, projects). We took full advantage of whole our stay and besides new friends (hopefully not just fb :)), the project gave me an insight into the possibilities of being an active citizen” Mia

Summary what was project about:

At the beginning of the current debate on democracy is the relation of “citizenship and participation”. The importance of this relationship lies in the fact that the decision-making process, which is based on the active and continuous participation of citizens as the main axis of democracy, is essential. The way in which this relationship is implemented also determines the social decision-making processes. Participation can be defined as the process by which citizens participate in and influence decisions concerning public life. In this respect, participation is one of the indispensable cornerstones of democracy. Through active participation, young people are empowered to play a vital role in their own development as well as in that of their communities, helping them to learn vital life-skills, develop knowledge on human rights and citizenship and to promote positive civic action.

The main aim of our training course was to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes of youth workers and youth leaders on youth participation and its related issues. We aimed to give information, exchange information, discuss and exchange best practices and develop new projects about Youth Partic-ipation. We wanted to promote youth participation in local, national and European level. Our target group was youth workers who are interested and motivated to work further on participation related issues. Non formal education methods were applied by experienced trainers for the training course.
