Topic: To increase the awareness of youth workers and young people and equip them with tools to construct an enabling environment for youth workers and youth organisations to take part in political decision-making and problem-solving processes.
Description: Youth Workers and Youth Organisations nowadays are becoming more and more distant from politics, with almost a feeling of rejection or even repulsion towards the essential governance and core system of democracy. This training course wishes to provide a background set of competences to bridge that gap and to foster the grass-root youth sector to be, both, more interested, as well as becoming a key player in the world of politics and policymaking.
A training course which takes youth workers on a journey through politics, policies, decision-making and advocacy in order to bring young people closer to the democratic institutions and to have their say on the matter by exploring the implications and specifics of citizenship and participation, up to how to create and draft a policy paper.
