+ Young Citizenship


Young People

Sandra Silva

This programme was created in 2017 to enable greater youth participation in the co-creation of youth policies that are more appropriate to the needs of young people in our city. By learning how public institutions work, the power of voting and the importance of a democratic and participatory society, the aim was to contribute to a deeper reflection on the fundamental role of being active citizens who are concerned about the future. This encourages us to pay more attention to our surroundings and how we can act in response to challenges, and ultimately create a greater sense of belonging to a community.
