Youth Democracy Fund Berlin
The Senate of Berlin has launched a programme to foster youth participation in Berlin. The Youth Democracy Fund (“Jugend-Demokratiefonds Berlin”) is a funding programme for bodies engaged in working with young people between 12 and 21 years of age as well as an opportunity for young people themselves to apply for a funding if they want to carry out projects that deal with democracy, tolerance, prevention of violence and discrimination in manifold ways.
I would like to present a few aspects of Berlin’s programme and I am curious to hear about the places where you are from. Do the municipalities and authorities engage in implementing programmes to foster (youth) participation? How does it work? And: Does it work out?
I hope we can gather experience from where we reside. Participants in this session will (hopefully :) …
- learn about public funding programmes
- hear best practice and no-gos when it comes to funding
- gather inspiration for future projects and ideas for future funding of (participative) youth projects
I am looking forward to your contributions!
