Young People Revitalising Democracy

In this episode, we talk about local and international initiatives in the Council of Europe's Democracy Here, Democracy Now campaign.
How does revitalising democracy actually look on the ground and in practice? How can youth organisations contribute to democratic revival on the local and on the international level? How does the European Youth Foundation support local and international projects in the framework of the Democracy Here, Democracy Now campaign?

We speak to Gabriella from Fantapolitica and Sophie from the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) about the tokenisation of young people, the relationship between climate change and human rights education, the role of dialogue in conflict and the possibility of democratic revival through genuine youth participation. And what are our guests' expectations of the upcoming Youth Action Week?

Guests: Gabriella Sesti Osseo and Sophie Spickenbom
Hosts: Ismael Páez Civico and Mara Georgescu
