Speaking up - youth advocacy as tool for active citizenship
Start date: Jan 1, 2010,

"Advocacy is speaking up, drawing a community's attention to an important issue, and directing decision¬makers toward a solution. Advocacy is working with other people and organisations to make a difference".This definition of the concept "advocacy" is the starting point of the seminar Speaking up - Youth Advocacy as a Tool for Active Citizenship. The role of young people in local, national and European communities is a constant issue in the political debates (voting age, education, unemployment, drug & health issues, ...). However the voice of young people itself is not always equally represented in these debates. This seminar wants investigate through different methods how Youth Advocacy can serve as a tool for young people to become recognised as active citizens. The seminar, which takes place in Prague, will bring together around 26 participants (staff and volunteers) from 13 EU countries.
