Disappointment with politics, heavily widespread among the youth of Central Europe. The number of skeptics among young people in relation to politics is significant. The majority of Youth is convinced that “political parties are the same” and “youth don’t have a power to significantly influence political decisions”. The involvement in political parties, participation in political discussions or initiatives are not considered as attractive among youngsters.

The project involves experts together with local political representatives and decision-makers in order to promote active involvement of youth in policy-making and decision-making processes, strengthen youth confidence in those processes and help them understand how they work.
