Politics is making lots of concrete decisions that impact our lives on a daily basis. Decisions about mobility, funding for social and/or youth work, environment, construction of parks, roads and bridges, etc. We, as citizens, often have little to say about this. We believe that citizens should have a voice about decisions that affect their lives. A great of giving your opinion are bottom-up citizens initiatives. Creative actions supported by a large community can influence policy directly and give people a voice. This project wants give the opportunity to youth organizations to learn how they can support citizens actions with young people. ATTENTION: this is a training course and not a youth exchange. The focus of the project is on learning and not on visiting Brussels or entertainment!
