Are youth really uninterested in local politics? GaYa project partners believe that teenagers and young adults often just lack opportunities to have a say. So, they tested many ways to involve youth in local decision-making: Parc des Bauges (FR) has organised a festival to gather ideas for its new development plan; the town of Kranjska Gora (SI) has set up a participatory budgeting web platform; the city of Lausanne (CH) has created a youth council whose 60 members work with local policy-makers. As municipalities often meet similar obstacles on the path to youth participation, GaYa has included in its toolbox a set of “try different” cards, each highlighting how an alternative approach can help overcome these issues.
