Youth participation is still is a challenge across Europe. Participation often happens in cultural, leisure spheres or school environment. Aiming to develop stronger civic society, assisting young people in integration processes, youth participation and consultation in decision making processes has to be strengthened through creating platforms for youth to contribute to solving issues of society and communities. This project will create Online tools, manuals and recommendation how municipalities (local governmental bodies and institutions) can involve young people in to decision making process. This project will create new ways that decision makers would not only consult with youth, but that the ideas of youth would get priority status and provide young people with power, legitimacy and tools to monitor that their ideas are being implemented. With this project we want to shift youth participation from the concept of tokenism to active participation in advocating youth needs. The project will provide overview of local realities from Norway, UK and Lithuania in the field of participatory decision making. Project will provide tailored tools which are suiting for different realities, recommendations will be created how these tools could be used in different environments involving other social groups (senior citizens, young parents, unemployed, migrant background, disabled and etc.).This project will help civil servants, youth workers, community workers, NGO members to develop cooperation competence. Municipalities will get tolls for efficient cross-sectoral and cross-departmental cooperation. The Online tool will serve as mean to assure efficient youth participation and will allow to supervise the situation in the community and inform about needed changes and improvements. The Online tool will become a way how to consult with youth on important issues, decision makers will be able to shape the future of their communities with help of youth.
