A lot of youth participation also happens through projects that are specifically created to further young people’s opportunities to participate. Projects are often a good way to work on a specific topic or area of participation and representation of young people. There are many opportunities to start one’s own participation project.
European Union Erasmus+ programme identifies active participation of young people in the democratic process as a priority which means that project applications that seek to provide opportunities for young people to have a dialogue with decision-makers or to improve participation opportunities for young people in general, are particularly welcomed. Similarly, European Solidarity Corps programme has funding available to support projects that foster the active participation of young people.
