The aim of the project is to strengthen the culture of democracy in Latvia by integrating the Norwegian experience, developing the ability of young people to influence decisions in their region and the ability of local governments to involve young people in civic participation.

Being a young person who just starts to know all the norms and regulations, who is not yet familiar with the decision- making process in his country, it is easy to get confused on the roadmap “How to be an active resident of my county”. Studies show that there are opportunities to get involved, but youngsters do not use them. Why? That’s what we want to find out and change.
Project “Give Way to Youth!” is a complex project that includes 11 interconnected activities that will be created with the aim to improve youth opportunities to influence decision-making processes in rural areas of Latvia, so they could feel more confident about their ability to initiate changes and feel that they belong to Latvia. Several project activities will directly involve youngsters, but the main task of the project is to follow the process of youth participation, to analyze it, in order to improve youth policy in the regions of Latvia.
We want that all the paths to active participation in the decision-making process in rural areas become more visible and smoother for young people, so their participatory experience could create satisfaction and they would like to make more project initiatives in the future.

Cooperation with donor countries: the project is being implemented in cooperation with the Norwegian organization "Creatorium".
