Participatory democracy does not rely only on elections, but also on a range of other tools and mechanisms which facilitate citizens' participation in decision-making. These tools can help young people to organise, engage with policy-makers at all governance levels and demand policy changes.

In this episode we discuss the contemporary youth participation trends, what different tools and methods are used by the Council of Europe and its member states, the European Youth Forum, and youth organisations across Europe, and what is needed to achieve meaningful participation and impact on policy.

Guests: Cornelia Perle and Christiana Xenofontos

Hosts: Ismael Páez Civico and Lana Pasic
