Governance and Youth in the Alps

Local action plans of participation

Between September 2017 and March 2018, eight partners of GaYA project have organised and conducted 15 trainings and workshops for local young people, decision- and policy-makers. To improve the cooperation between young people, administrators and politicians, the participants of these events have designed and initiated new youth participatory processes.

Based on these local events, participation canvases have been prepared and further combined into Local Action Plans of Participation. Plans range from setting up youth commissions, increasing transparency and designing youth rooms to revising municipal youth policies, different forms of youth participatory budgeting or even adding youth to the governance models of entire regions.
