Are you interested in being more engaged in the public life of your city? Do you feel young people want to participate more in the public decision-making of their cities and neighbourhoods, but find it difficult to be heard? Do you feel public policies and services could better respond to the needs of youth? Make a short video (100 seconds max) that answers the question: “How can your local government* strengthen engagement with young people?”The deadline is November 24 2018.
The project “ Youth in Public Life: Towards an Open and Inclusive Youth Engagement” is implemented by the MENA-OECD Governance Programme with the support of the G7 Deauville Partnership MENA Transition Fund. It supports Tunisia, Morocco and Jordan in strengthening public governance arrangements for young men and women to engage in public life.
In the framework of the project, the Presidency of the Government and the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sport of Tunisia organises in co-operation with the OECD the high-level regional youth conference on 27-28 November 2018 in Tunis.
The conference will bring together representatives from youth ministries, public decision-makers from the central and local level, youth associations, non-governmental organisations and young people from MENA and OECD member countries to exchange good practices and lessons learned on how to increase youth participation at the local level and how public policies and services at the local level can better respond to the actual needs of young men and women.
