Using youth exchange programs to develop knowledge on policy systems
This program engages youngsters into the civic and governmental decision-making processes of countries/cities where they are hosted for a residency period. It is a similar to Eramus, but focused on policy-making. The aim is to help young people develop knowledge about different countries government and policy systems and give their own contributions, thus bringing in their perspective as independent thinkers from abroad and strengthening the democratic processes in those places.
