[CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS] Boosting youth participation at the local level 2 – Study visit to Granada

The Study visit will take place from 1st – 6th March, 2020 in Granada, Spain and it will involve municipality officers and youth workers from Sweden, Portugal, Greece, Finland, North Macedonia, Spain, UK, Latvia, Poland, Turkey and Italy.

The project focuses on the local dimension of youth participation based on the belief that youth with its energy has the creativity and potential for change and to be a source of solutions for our society’s challenges, and that these challenges need to be addressed at the local level, starting from the grassroots, where youth work has its strongest impact and where local actors can cooperate and contribute to policy reforms at the local level but also influence national and European policy processes becoming relevant actors in setting the agendas that will affect their lives. As a follow-up to the work done by DYPALL Network and its partners in “Boosting youth participation at the local level 1” Study visits in Portimão (Portugal) and Borlänge (Sweden) in 2017 and 2018, we have recognised the importance of further exploring the dimension of youth participation in decision-making processes at the local level, with a specific focus on participation of young migrants and young people with a migrant background, as well as of youth from rural and geographically isolated areas, and especially to share practices that are already being implemented to adapt them to one’s own reality and reinforce existing programs.

“Boosting youth participation at local level 2” will include two Study visit, to Granada (Spain) and Stockholm (Sweden). This Call for participants is only for participating in the Study visit in Spain. There will be a separate Call published for the Study visit in Sweden.
