The project’s goal is that Region Dalarna and Hubei Provincial Government involve youth perspective in the planning and decision-making process.
The project work with youth counselors by increasing their competence and roll in the municipalities. The youth counselors then reach out to the student councils in order to test a method for Citizen’s Dialogue between the youth and the regional governing bodies. Region Dalarna and Hubei Provincial Government shall send at least one proposal to the student council in the pilot municipalities to take in the young people’s opinions and suggestions during the 3 years.
These intermediate goals should also be met:
- Politicians and youth counselors are on the same page regarding the importance of adopting youth
- Region Dalarna and Hubei Government have a method for Citizen’s Dialogue, and engage young people in the planning and decision-making process.
- Officials are aware of the importance of adopting youth perspective in their proposals, and involve youth strategist and youth counselors in their planning process.
Long-termly, for the sustainable development of our regions, we aim to build a more inclusive society where youth perspective are included, youth’s competence utilised, and more youth stay or move back to our regions.
