Stories about Youth Participation

The second Summit for Democracy has given a prominent place to youth civic and political participation, but there is still significant work to be done to engage governments in proactively and tangibly addressing and prioritizing youth-related concerns

To do this… we’ve found nothing better than to ask several organisations to share their know-how on ways to improve Youth Participation in Public Affairs. This series of videos was shot during the last Democracy Summit in Costa Rica and Zambia in March 2023.
