Type of the project
Youth Exchange: Sharing The Shaping
Project themes
– Participation of young people in development of civil society
Project summary
A lot of factors surround the shaping of youth in our countries. If we could observe these factors and look at their corresponding results, we can come out with what make us (the youth) who we are. Some of these factors contribute in our level of commitment and participation to our society. Magnifying and applying these findings on a group of youth, would it create the ultimate youth power.
The project aims at developing a wide understanding of the conception of youth development, focusing on the different conditions that can produce active youth, in different fields. By sharing the participants experience in their own countries, we can analyze these conditions and brainstorm on their cons and pros. And as a result we can examine how using the most suitable conditions on a group of youth can produce an active responsible young public that can be the moving force for their nations.
There is a direct relation between youth development and participation of young people in the development of civil society. You have to develop them first in order for them to take the leading positions later and developing their countries.
Through Sharing personal experience on the conditions that shaped our characters from the socio political perspective and various understandings of youth empowerment polices, we can come up with a list of recommendations on the conditions we would like to have in order to develop appropriately and help our countries.
Partners are requested to develop an obligatory research on the process of youth development in their country and collecting some data about youth in their society.
We will Start using this data as a reference in the youth exchange to discuss in groups what are the effects of the existing conditions and what the results are if it was applied in different environment. Also having some statistics about youth participation in civil society (e.g volunteering, engagement in decision making, active participation in socio political systems) would be an indicator for the effect of the existing conditions in this country.
There are no real constraints facing the implementation idea since the topic is commonly shared by youth all over the world especially with uprises of lots of opposition movements no more led by political parties but by the youth groups.
