Revised European Charter on the Participation of Young People in Local and Regional Life

Charter without the status of a convention adopted by the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of Europe (10th session – 21 May 2003 – Appendix to the Recommendation 128)

The active participation of young people in decisions and actions at local and regional level is essential if we are to build more democratic, inclusive and prosperous societies. Participation in the democratic life of any community is about more than voting or standing for election, although these are important elements. Participation and active citizenship is about having the right, the means, the space and the opportunity and where necessary the support to participate in and influence decisions and engage in actions and activities so as to contribute to building a better society.
