During the event, young people from Khust, Tyachevo, Irshava, Perechyn and Vilkhivtsi reflected on youth participation, what it is and what is its practical value.
They talked about types of participation or non-participation, manipulation of public opinion, shared positive and negative experiences of involvement in decision-making.
The participants learned about the history of the creation of youth councils and their main tasks.
