Beteiligung und Stärkung - Participation and Empowerment

Participation and Empowerment

We want to empower young people for politics and the labour market.

We advocate for the political framework conditions so that young people are heard, involved and empowered.

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

We strengthen the child’s right to voice and participation as a fundamental principle of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Political participation

We promote the participation of young people in social and political decision-making processes.

Strengthening Economic and Civic Participation

We advocate for future-just policies to advance youth access to sustainable and decent economic jobs and enhance their civic and political participation.


Empowering Children and Youth through active civic and political engagement and fostering economic skills development

In 2019, the Future Policy Award acknowledged outstanding legislations that not only enhance(s) the skills of young (individuals) people, but also enabling them to thrive in the job market and empowers them to contribute as co-creators of a sustainable and green economy. Only 2.2% of parliamentarians around the world are under 30 years old. The Future Policy Award also celebrated laws and frameworks that effectively promote the social and political participation of youth and young people, emphasizing their role in shaping a better future.
