Last September and October, the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg hosted two residential study sessions in partnership with DYPALL Network - Developing youth participation at the local level and YPAN - Youth Peace Ambassadors Network.
The activities ran under specific health and sanitary measures with reduced number of participants. However, everyone present felt very privileged to be able to take part in these activities despite the difficulties that we are faced with due to the pandemic. The participants were extremely respectful of the procedures in place and everyone stayed safe during both sessions.
The study session with DYPALL explored digital youth participation at local level. During the pandemic this topic became even more important, so the participants looked into principles for digital youth participation and explored some tools that can be used online.
The study session with YPAN focused on peace advocacy, exploring aspects how young peacebuilders can work on conflict transformation and peace on grassroots level.
The reports from both activities are now available online:
