Valdemarsvik, Palapye and Central district – Botswana

Ensuring youth participation

The two municipalities cooperating with the district level in Botswana, though the involvement of Central district in the partnership, are committed to achieving Agenda 2030 through a rightsbased approach and aim to work more systematically with human rights at a local level.

At this stage both partners have established a mutual challenge regarding youth participation in their municipalities and would like to explore further together what their organisations, as duty bearers, can to to ensure that the rights of young citizens are better protected, respected and promoted.
