The Youth democracy launches the Menu of possible commitments

Meant to help prioritise, facilitate and enhance youth civic and political participation, the Youth Democracy Cohort has launched its Menu of Possible Commitments for Participating States. 

What is it about? 

Fruit of the close collaboration of the Cohort’s different member organisations, these 33 actionable points are specific recommendations for participating governments to adopt as commitments, reforms, and initiatives to improve youth rights and participation in their national contexts. It was officially presented on 28th of February 2023 during the pre-Summit for Democracy – Global Democracy Coalition Forum in Brussels.

What can you do as a member/supporter organisation?

Share these commitment models, use them as an inspiration to create your own menu of possible commitments tailored to your reality and context, or as a gauge to assess the situation in your country or region of interest … and contact us, the Youth Democracy Cohort member organisations are helping each other in this effort.

Call for proposals

In order to support the Menu of Possible Commitments, the Youth Democracy Cohort will soon launch a call for proposals to award advocacy grants. All relevant information will be communicated by the Youth Democracy Cohort very soon, so we advise you to follow us on social media to be informed in the first line.

Together let’s push youth participation to the next level!
