Youth space: why voting is important?

In order to address the declining young people’s political participation, we organized an event to debate why is crucial to be democratically engaged and how to increase youth interest and engage young people in democratic elections, using different tools such as mock elections, informational campaigns, ways of contacting youth, lowering the voting age, adapting the electoral system, etc.

Democracy Toursits

To increase people’s interest in civil participation we used creative ways to show democracy in action. Every project partner presented democratic practices through videos, interviews, photographs, storytelling, etc. Showing the national aspects in the field we shared good/bad democratic practices and discussed concrete ways to create a more democratic Union.
