Webinar 2 – The (he)art of participation 2.0

DEMOCRACY RELOADING WEBINAR The (he)art of participation 2.0

This webinar is designed for municipality officers who want to improve youth participation in municipal decision-making. The Webinar aims to support the development of relevant competences of municipality officers with the help of the online Toolkit.

This webinar is one of the four online activities that the Democracy Reloading Partnership is organising on the basis of its online Toolkit. Each webinar is focusing one of the 4 key competences for municipality staff. This second webinar will focus on ‘Empowering and engaging young people in decision-making

During this webinar we will look at what a youth policy officer can and should do to reach out and engage young people from the local community,  and motivate them participate in municipal decisions.

We will be answering the following questions together:

  • How do I value and recognize the ideas and proposals of young people?
  • How do I assess the needs and realities of young people in my community?
  • How can I communicate and cooperate with young people on equal grounds?

The webinar will take place from 15.30 – 17.30 Central European Time
