Welcome to this first sequence of this unit of e-training on youth participation in Europe!
Before you start, we invite you to play a little game.
Classify these images by dragging them to either the “Participation” or “Non-participation” side.
(Attention, for this to work you must move the images at least a little)
Not easy to choose?
Neither do we… Indeed we believe that all these images can represent participation, in different forms!
Participation is often at the heart of the concerns with a main issue: How to get young people involved?
We suggest you approach things in a slightly different way!
Let’s take as starting point the idea that participation can take place everywhere, everyone participates in her/his own way, more or less within pre-established frameworks. There would therefore not be a single form of participation but many, which are more or less legitimised in public discourse.
