Are you interested to discover tools to improve inclusive and meaningful youth participation in democratic processes and build more peaceful and resilient societies?
The Eastern Partnership countries are witnessing a worrying degree of democratic backsliding and retrenchment. Even well-functioning democracies in the EU face challenges such as rising extremism, threats against journalists, and the spread of disinformation, which contribute to undermining the trust of citizens in democratic institutions.
To build more democratic, inclusive, resilient and peaceful societies, it is essential to ensure meaningful youth participation and make the voices of young people heard on local, national, regional and international levels.
Why should you take part?
Through participation in the Eastern Partnership Youth Conference – Youth for Revitalisation of Democracy, around 100 young people will have the opportunity to discover methods, strategies and tools to improve inclusive and meaningful youth participation in democratic processes, foster active involvement in decision-making on all levels of policy development and political decision-making, and hold authorities accountable to democratic and human rights standards they committed to. The conference will also focus on how to build more peaceful and resilient communities.
Travel, meals and accommodation costs will be fully covered for the selected participants.
Young people from the European Union and the Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) are invited to apply to take part in this Youth Conference.
