Youth Civil Participation: A Challenge for Transitional Countries in Eastern Europe
The Students' Forum 2000, the Association for International Affairs and the British Council are organizing a seminar about the problems and perspectives of Youth civil participation in Europe.
We are looking for young people who want to know more about the means available to shape the public sphere. At the seminar we will discus the various ways and mechanisms of how youth can contribute to a more democratic society. More over we would like to look for concrete action to spread the meaning of active citizenship among the people so that especially young people are more aware of the impact they can up on the public sphere.
