CALL FOR PARTNER ORGANISATIONS



“Greening Democracy – A Global Perspective on Youth Participation”



July 2015 in Istanbul, Turkey



The Global Young Greens (GYG) and the Young Greens of Turkey (YGT) are
looking for partner organisations to apply for funding to the Erasmus+
Programme in Turkey in order to implement an unforgetable seminar on the
topic of “Greening Democracy – A Global Perspective on Youth Participation”.
If your are interested in becoming a partner organisation, please send an
email to Antoine Tifine at antoine at globalyounggreens.org until Jan 30th,
2015.



AIM OF THE PROJECT

The aim of the seminar is to raise awareness about socialisation, learning
and living in different societies as well as the meaning of both EU
citizenship and global citizenship and the rights that go with it.
Furthermore, we aim at creating a space for youth to identify their
commonalities and differences while finding strength in their diversity in
order to develop their own skills, knowledge and attitudes in terms of
interculturality. Through identifying opportunities for more lasting
collaboration at the regional and global level we want to arouse ther
curiosity in order to increase their motivation and commitment to democratic
projects and participation in their own societies.



*DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT *

The seminar "Greening Democracy - A Global Perspective on Youth Participatio
n" will bring together about 100 young people from Europe, Global South and
beyond in Istanbul, Turkey to find out how we can strengthen the
participation of youth in European society in a way that will increase
social cohesion and equality. As we know, democracy is not a homogenous term
or experience, it manifests differently around the region and world. At the
same time it has a powerful ability to bring people together and to
transform our societies. Therefore, the focus of this seminar is to explore
the greening of democracy, which means both a renewal, rejuvenation and
revival of democracy as well as a green approach to the topic in terms of
considering the concepts of grassroots and participatory democracy,
ecological sustainability, social justice and peace. It is with this focus
in mind that we hope to identify our commonalities and differences while
finding strength in our diversity. Both to increase our personal motivation
and commitment to democratic projects in our own countries and to also
identify opportunities for more lasting collaboration at the regional and
global level. Thus, we want to invite a number young guest speakers from
countries outside of Europe in order to ensure an authentic approach to the
greening democracy from a genuine global perspective on youth participation.
