Cork Healthy Cities leads the Cork City engagement with the PART-Y Erasmus Plus Project which seeks to promote engaging, connecting and empowering young people, to supporting educators, youth workers, educational leaders and support staff, and to strengthen common values, civic engagement and participation.
The project aims to trigger the participation in civic life of young people (13-20 years) by fostering their inclusion in the policies decision-making process and promoting the concept of “generation equality” introduced by the United Nations agency UN Women for equal opportunities among the youngest. The project intends to focus the attention of girls, boys and educators on the common spaces of the city as fundamental places of gathering and democracy, essential elements in their growth process.
The main objectives are:
– To strengthen youth involvement in European democratic life by promoting their right to the city and to public spaces from a “generation equality” and social inclusion perspective.
– To improve the innovation capacity in the activities proposed to young people and the internationalization of youth organisations in the countries participating in the project.
