The European Commission’s Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy recently published a ‘Toolkit for Youth Participation in the Just Transition Fund. It aims to encourage more ambitious, meaningful and numerous participation opportunities for youth in the regions targeted by the Just Transition Fund, as well as to ensure that the effects of such processes will lead to better-quality strategies and interventions addressing the challenges of the transition.
This toolkit is addressed at regional and local policy-makers, who are responsible for implementation of the Just Transition Fund, as well as other stakeholders involved in the process. Its goal is to support and guide on how to organise meaningful participation of young people. It provides a set of principles, methods and concrete tips of how to maximise the meaningful participation of youth in the programming, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the Just Transition Fund. Moreover, it offers examples of how particular techniques were successfully used in the past.
