Young people have the right to be involved in democratic structures and processes, have their voice ahead and make decisions on issues that impact on them and their lives. Their diversity of experience, ideas and skills are unique resources for society. Young people’s active participation in decisions and actions at local/regional levels is essential if we are to build more democratic, inclusive and prosperous societies. The Revised Charter contains principles, best practices and guidelines to enhance youth participation at local/regional levels. It is not a legally binding instrument but member states have a moral responsibility to implement it.
