Our Civic Space is a platform for youth workers which brings together best practices, examples, case studies and other forms of knowledge and experiences related to civic space and youth. It also invites you to share your own experiences and thoughts about this topic and it aspires to bring likeminded people together and start new initiatives.
A youth civic space enables young people – aged 15 to 29 – to have the freedom to assemble, express, develop themselves and make decisions concerning their lives and society.
These are our stories, which we update weekly. They can vary from a best practice somewhere in the world to an activity from one of our partners in their country. The main aim is to show possibilities and practical examples on how to treasure and improve civic spaces for and with youth.
