LegiLAB was a project coordinated by the non-governmental institution Pekarna Magdalenske mreže from Slovenia in collaboration with partner organisations from Italy, Poland and Great Britain (Scotland). The main activity of the project was training course in Legislative theatre which took place from the 10th till 17th of October 2015 in Maribor, Slovenia. The training course in Legislative theatre was a 7-day event, attended by youth workers selected by partner organisations from all of the participating countries. All the participants were experienced youth leaders involved the youthwork on political and social participation in their local communities, including participants with the fewer opportunities. The main objective of the training course was to educate youth workers in the method of Legislative theatre, which they have later applied and disseminated in their local communities, thus becoming multipliers of this method. Legislative theatre is a special branch in the Theatre of the oppressed, dealing with the process of legislation itself. I.e. it aims to present and educate deprivileged groups in the mechanisms of the legislation process, thus empowering them to influence this very process and implement a legislation which is more favourable to them. Europe today is facing an erosion in political participation, especially among youth since young people often feel that their voice does not count and their engagement does not bring any results. This results in the political passivisation of youth. Legislative theatre aims to change this. It gives (young) people the knowledge and skills to affect political and legislative processes and attain concrete changes in their political reality. The course brought together experts and participants with different backgrounds from diverse fields of social activism, youth work, legislative processes etc., in order to allowed for a sinergy and exchange of ideas and working methods and to enabled participants to further disseminate these approach in their local communities. The long-term goals of the project are to prolong international cooperation among participating partners in future projects aiming to develop Legislative theatre as a form of youth work; to positively influence the area of active citizenship; and to explore new possibilities of increasing the participation of youth in decision-making processes in society at the local, state and international levels and to promote better understanding of the social, cultural and legal diversity of the participants in order to build a common European identity.
