The YUPAD project aims to enable young people to understand, practice, and influence youth participatory budgets across European cities. During the project a comprehensive view of already existing grass-root and policy practices in youth participatory budgets combining research, policy, and youth work practices will be developed. Local policy mechanisms for participatory budgets will be created and the capacity of educators to provide quality non-formal educational activities for young people on topics of youth participatory budgets will be built. This will enable local authorities to put in practice youth participatory budgets using big data while addressing digital transformation.
Develop a comprehensive view of already existing grass-root and policy practices in youth participatory budgets combining the research, policy and youth work practices
Create and put in place local policy mechanisms for participatory budgets in order to ensure the effective sustainability and long-term impact
Develop the capacity of educators (youth workers, youth leaders, trainers, teachers) to provide quality non-formal educational activities for young people on topics of youth participatory budgets as part of civic education
Enable local authorities to put in practice youth participatory budgets using big data while addressing digital transformation
Ensure the sustainability of project results by developing the community of practitioners from across Europe in order to promote non-formal education and youth participatory budgets in the local communities, ensuring strong European context
Young people will acquire skills in participatory budgeting and civic engagement.
Educators (youth workers, youth leaders, trainers, teachers) will have the chance to gain knowledge and raise their capacity in working with young people on participatory budgets.
Policymakers will gain awareness of how to involve young people in decision-making through participatory budgeting, with the transferability potential to spread such experience into other spheres of participation on a local, national and international level, using Big Data.
The community of practice will benefit from the creation of a space to share their good practices and experiences, as well as capacity-building activities.
