''We have to build an inclusive, cohesive and truly representative democracy that involves all groups of society equally, including youth, women and disadvantaged people,'' concluded Andreas Kiefer, Secretary General of the Congress, when moderating Lab 16 of the third World Forum for Democracy (Strasbourg, 3-5 November 2014). A lively discussion was held on the main topic of youth participation in elections, based on the two initiatives presented: ''Youth Elections Training: My Choice'' introduced by the Democratic Youth Movement from Bosnia-Herzegovina and “Chabab 2012” by The Circle of Young Democrats of Morocco.
