The Council of Europe Youth Department invites partnerships with local authorities from Ukraine within the project “YOUNG PEOPLE, FULL CITIZENS” which aims to support municipalities and amalgamated communities in Ukraine to implement innovative youth-friendly policies and programmes for youth participation and civic engagement.
The project will last from September 2020 until November 2021 and will include research, capacity-building activities, implementation of local projects by participants, support and advisory missions of youth policy experts, evaluation and consolidation meetings.
The implementation of local youth policy measures and local youth participation projects by participants will be the centre-piece of this initiative. Local projects should embody a practical expression of the intended change in the participation and civicism of young people. Training and capacity-building should be put into place to support the inception, development and implementation of these local projects in line with the standards and best practices of the Council of Europe.
The project “YOUNG PEOPLE, FULL CITIZENS” is co-organised within the “Youth for Democracy” dimension of the Council of Europe Action Plan for Ukraine, with the support of the Ministry of Youth and Sport of Ukraine.
The co-organisers encourage Ukrainian local authorities to express their interest in participation by 16 August 2020, especially those with a desire to bring change and concrete action to local policies fostering youth participation and civic engagement in their communities.
Detailed information about the project “YOUNG PEOPLE, FULL CITIZENS” and conditions of participation can be found in the call for partnerships with municipalities and the form for expression of interest to be submitted by 16 August 2020 is here.
