Our director Mariana Miguela was in representation of SYnergia, in Paris, on the “LOCAL EUROPEAN YOUTH COUNCIL”.
The Council of Europe wants with these events to encourage more young people to become actively involved in strengthening civil society in Europe and to uphold the values of human rights, cultural diversity and social cohesion. It also wants to promote and develop youth policies, with special emphasis on youth participation.
Inviting a number of young people to participate will create a space for dialogue between young people and local and regional elected representatives and allow young people to express their views on the issues being debated.
Thanks to the youth department of CM Braga for the opportunity.
