We seek to develop capacity and competency towards ensuring the participation of young people in the civic life of a city, a community or a school. It aims to be an innovative project that gives opportunities to experience democracy in action, especially at the local level.

The project consists of 5 partners from 3 countries – Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom. All involved in activities that seek to develop civic participation and who share a particular interest in the empowerment of young people.
