Our Civic Space

Our Civic Space is an interactive platform for youth workers which brings together best practices, examples, case studies and other forms of knowledge and experiences related to civic space. It also provides the opportunity to share your own thoughts and experiences in the area of civic space

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.

The Stories

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 the possibilities on how to treasure and improve civic spaces.
