Fostering a Culture of Participation: Mainstreaming Local Youth Councils in Europe

Local Youth Councils (LYC) have two main dimensions: one is pedagogical, and the other is civic and democratic. These structures are often the first contact with more formal democratic means for many youngsters. This project aims to strengthen young people’s democratic participation at the local and regional levels by improving existing LYC’ processes and practices. To understand the multiple models of LYC, the consortium mapped and collected data from the different partners. This publication gathers information regarding various aspects of the LYC, such as its composition, organization, goals, resources available, and other relevant information. Also, it compiles the inside perspectives regarding importance, effectiveness, youth representation, and impact for 10 LYC from 5 countries.
