In the context of the World Youth Day, Civic Space is holding an online workshop on Wednesday, August 17, 2022 from 14:00 to 16:30. The workshop aims to contribute to CSOs that seek to strengthen youth inclusion in their organisations and in the society. We will be introducing measures and ways of mainstreaming youth in organisations. This is based on the acknowledgement that youth rights and their inclusion are the responsibility of not only youth organisations or those working in the field of youth, but also all segments of society and all organisations and institutions, regardless of their thematic focus areas.
The workshop will introduce the Youth Mainstreaming Guide that we recently published. This Guide contains applicable measures and steps, primarily for CSOs, to include young people and their perspectives in institutional policies, planning and operational daily work. In addition, the Guide includes a checklist that you can use to assess whether your organisation is implementing relevant measures and steps, while giving you the opportunity to overcome potential shortcomings.
We welcome all CSOs in our workshop, that want to contribute to the development of youth rights and the meaningful participation of young people in the society.
