IRIS Newsletter 1/2007 published
Youth and Participation is the topic of the latest IRIS Newsletter. Participation of chidren and young people has become the number one topic in youth policies. But, what does it mean? Who is participating in what? Does participation make a difference with regard to social integration or is it just a cover-up of the exclusion of young people from decisions that concern them? The new IRIS newsletter is dealing with these questions before the background of current and past IRIS projects (in German language).

Youth and Participation: URBACT Young Citizens‘ Project

Written by AP on . Posted in Young Citizens' Project

Logo Young Citizens' Project

At the outset of this project potential partner cities were invited to join a network in which young people would be empowered to make a contribution to civic life in their cities; to make recommendations to statutory bodies; and help to develop forms of governance that
encourage the active participation of young people. The idea behind this was simple: young people are the future and, as such, they should be the source of solutions to local issues.
The “Young Citizens’ Project” ended up as a network of European cities how set out to create opportunities, open up decision-making
processes, and provide young people with the tools and support to engage meaningfully with issues that are of importance to them.

It was funded by the EU’s “URBACT” programme and IRIS researcher Axel Pohl supported the network as a Thematic Expert.
