Youth Voices for Influence and Participation

Dalarna county and Hubei province became sister regions in September 2011. In order to secure a long-term friendship and mutual understanding between our regions it is important to include young people in the cooperation. Young people of today will be the leaders of tomorrow.

With that in mind, the overall objective for the different measures in this project is to enhance the possibilities for young people to influence the decision making processes on regional development and to give our regional organizations the opportunity to learn from young people’s perspectives.

Specific Results:

  • When the project is completed, the project goal is that the young participants have received more knowledge about their rights and possibilities to affect in the regional development.
  • The goal is also that the steering group within the management and coordination project will participate in the four bigger arrangements that Youth V.I.P D/H will implement during the Peace and Love festival in Borlänge and Love and Peace in Wuhan.
  • Both of the regional governing bodies should have received information and knowledge about the result of the yearly participant survey that have been accomplished within Youth V.I.P D/H.
