The training course will support Erasmus + agencies in desigining and implementing activities based on the Online Toolkit for municipalities. We will train trainers, experts, consultants & other multipliers to help municipalities in improving their work.

The involvement of young people in developing youth policies and in decision making is fundamental to increase the sense of belonging and active citizenship of young people to their communities. This calls municipalities and regional public authorities to address the needs and interests of youth, to engage youth as actors of the solutions for their problems, to increase the level of their ownership of and responsibility for their own community and thus to develop the quality of local democracy. We believe that young people if adequately informed, trained, empowered and entrusted they will be the best actors of change and promoters of democracy, rule of law and equality. 

Democracy Relaoding is a program of Erasmus+ Youth national agencies since 2015 that was established as strategic approach of working with local and regional public authorities in planning, developing, maintaining and reforming democratic youth participation structures for dialogue, co-decision and co-management. Based on the lessons learned during the activities of last 5 years a reference model designed out of the competences required for municipalities for engaging youth in decision-making and an online Toolkit as developed to support the development of these competences. This Toolkit is the basis of a long term strategic development plan to address municipalities through the Erasmus + Youth program. It is designed to help youth policy related municipality staff  to become empowered, competent and ready to engage young people into decision making and thus improving active citizenship and democracy in local communities. The Toolkit will be oficially published online during the Launching Conference in early 2021 (March) in Portimao, Portugal. 

This training course will aim to train adequate number of multipliers (trainers, consultants, experts) who will be able to support the implementation of the national activities in coherence with Europe Goes Local objectives and also help municipality officers (and their local allies) who work with youth policies, structures and programs engaging young people in municipal decision making by using the online Toolkit. 

This Module will include three online activities and a training seminar in Italy as follows:

  • February 2021 – 1st online activity
  • March 2021 – 2nd onloine activity (Launching Event)
  • May 2021 – 3rd online activity
