BEST PRACTICES


The purpose of this proposal is to set up an internal dialogue structure between the municipal authority and the local youth groups. Create a framework that will enable young people's groups to communicate with the municipal authority and make joint decisions. 

The proposal concerns the creation of a network of civil society organizations and bodies representing municipalities, who will design and implement an electronic platform with the following capabilities. There will be room for informal groups of young people, clubs and NGOs active in the youth field in every local community. 

All the above organizations will be able to register with the system with one application and obtain their usage codes. On the municipality side, a commission will be set up by the municipal authority, which will be responsible for running the platform and communicating with youth groups. Registered youth groups will be able to submit online requests regarding local requests or issues of a small or large group of young people.



The committee, which will be responsible for managing the platform, should contact the youth teams who will table a proposal, idea, and request and organize a working life meeting. There they should ask the youth groups to formulate their proposal in detail and agree with them on the next steps. 

Either that means resolving them together, or even if they concern bigger issues putting them on the city council where they will certainly invite and the youth groups to be officially placed. This creates a framework for organized dialogue and youth participation in decision-making. In this context, working meetings will be established to determine the procedures and the way this platform works, its functioning and the way the results will be disseminated. 

In addition, we will set up national and international conferences where the results of this project will be discussed, as well as a good practice guide for developing a framework guide on youth participation, ways of engagement and decision-making.
