Local democracy, Youth Council

In Ilala municipality in Dar es Salaam, the youth have no opportunity to bring forward their oppinions and ideas. The City Council don’t know how the youth’s situation looks like in Dar es Salaam.

The project aims to start student councils in three schools in Ilala, which later transfers into a youth council that communicates with the City Council.

The three schools will then educate the other schools in Ilala on how to work with student councils. Strängnäs municipality has a long tradition of dialogue with youth, but needs to learn new ways to ensure that the youths opninions and ideas are utilized early in the process.
