According to STATEC, the age groups from 18 to 34 years old are largely under-represented in Luxembourg elections in 2011 (5% for 18/24 year olds and 6% for 25/34 year olds). These numbers remained stable for the 2017 elections.
According to the same report, young people lack interest in elections because other interests seem more important to them (notably school or academic success, the transition to working life, the creation of a household, etc.). This gives rise to the need for youngsters to appropriate the tools and mechanisms of participation in Luxembourg: the need for structural knowledge on the concepts of participation and politics in general participation and politics in general: a need for basic information on the Luxembourg political system, on system, on participation mechanisms, on participation as an essential value in democracies...
The goals are...
- To promote youth participation through “Democracy here, democracy now” COE campaign
- To improve the political participation of young people in Luxembourg
- Empowering young people (by involving them in all the stages of the project)
- To stabilize and sustain a youth-led and youth-managed information service.
How to achieve it?
By recruiting and training 30-50 young people in youth participation and reach 250-300 young people through the activities of trained youth to inform their peers
By providing young people with communication skills, technical skills (including skills to create radio podcasts, social media posts, video editing etc.), knowledge of the mechanisms and functioning of democracy at local and European level (specifically concerning the communal and legislative elections in Luxembourg), increased knowledge of the actors of youth participation in Luxembourg.
By ensuring a close follow-up to the young participants in order for them to exercise their role as referents in an efficient way
So join us in one of the two training and become an actor of change.
The first training in november 2022
