Listen Up - Young Voices for Democracy YiA Seminar.

As the UK National Agency for the Youth in Action (YiA) program, and in preparation for the European Year of Citizens (2013), in June 26-28 the British Council hosted a seminar on young people and democracy in Europe.
The aim of the event was to showcase what works: projects that make a real difference to how young people see democracy and to how they contribute to democratic processes – locally, nationally and internationally. The specific objectives were: a) to demonstrate current approaches in the UK and other European countries to maximizing young people's democratic participation; b) to provide opportunities for young people to engage with policy-makers/influencer in an international forum; c) to raise the profile of the Youth in Action program in building the skills and experience of young people.  

During the seminar the young leaders, policy-makers from about 35 countries of the world- Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Chech Republic, Germany, Malta, Poland, Turkey, Ukraine, etc. presented case-studies on individual projects – and found the points of wider significance for discussion by all conference participants.

Armenia was represented by Jenny Kazumyan- the Vice President for External Relations and Information Management of "Serund Pan-Armenian Youth Center". 

It was a good platform for exchanging the skills and experience, and for building new partnerships.
