Empowering YOUth taking the Lead towards active citizenship

Empowering YOUth taking the Lead towards active citizenship

Young people need flourishing civil society and civic space in which they can actively participate and fully utilize their political rights. However, the last few years have brought a persistent silencing of the voice of youth, limiting their civic space and participation in democratic life. Young people often have fewer opportunities to participate and are underrepresented in decision-making. This trend was strengthened due to the COVID-19 and the adopted measures leading to restricted freedoms and limited access to fundamental rights.

YOULead aims to provide youth with knowledge and skills allowing them to build their understanding of the social and political issues that affect us all and disadvantage some. Through acquired training, young people will develop capacity to become agents of change.

YOULead is anticipated to have the following outcomes:

1) Curriculum on Active Citizenship for Youth
2) Guide-Toolkit for Civic Engagement
3) eLearning Platform
