According to the “Revised European Charter on youth participation in public life at local and regional level” 2003 youth parliaments are key organizational forms of youth participation in local and regional affairs.

Our goal is to implement a test project in Ukraine where the problem is most painful and scale this model around Europe.
We have an agreement with the youth parliament of Norway (Bergen) and Sweden.
