Participation: youth goal challenge



"Young people are underrepresented in decision-making processes which affect them although their engagement is crucial to democracy. They need access to physical spaces in their communities to support their personal, cultural and political development. Strengthen young people’s democratic participation and autonomy as well as provide dedicated youth spaces in all areas of society." - This is youth goal number 9 from the European Union, shortly called "Space and Participation for All".
