CALL FOR LAB SUBMISSIONS

The Strasbourg World Forum for Democracy is an annual gathering of leaders, opinion-makers, civil society activists, representatives of business, social innovators, academia, and media to debate key challenges for democracies worldwide and encourage democratic innovation.

The fourth edition of the World Forum for Democracy, to take place on 18-20 November 2015, will focus on the challenges democracies face in addressing security risks without jeopardising freedom and democratic stability.

For the first time, the Forum will not only showcase already existing initiatives, but also innovative, untested ideas to maintain and develop democracy’s basic principles in times of increasing security threats.

Interested organisations worldwide are invited to express their interest in presenting either an example/initiative or an idea to respond to security threats in a way that preserves the basic principles of democracy such as freedom of expression, public deliberation, and the privacy of citizens, by answering the questionnaire and sending it back by 15 May 2015.

Call for youth representatives on the Council of Europe’s Advisory Council on Youth (2016-2017)
The Council of Europe’s youth sector works on the basis of a partnership between non-governmental youth organisations and governments, in what is known as the co-management system. This means that representatives from non-governmental youth organisations (NGYOs) and youth networks cooperate closely with government officials (European Steering Committee for Youth) to establish the standards and work priorities of the Council of Europe’s youth sector and make recommendations for future budgets and programmes.

The Advisory Council on Youth is the non-governmental partner in the co-management system.

Representatives of non-governmental youth organisations or networks not members of the European Youth Forum are invited to apply for a seat on the Advisory Council on Youth for a two-year mandate (January 2016 to December 2017).
