Held in the scope of the Networks of Mediterranean NET-MED Youth Project, this three-day brainstorming workshop held by Tunisian youth organizations’ representatives will provide support to the project of setting up Youth National Council in Tunisia. This consultation mechanism aims to foster youth participation in the public policy making process in the country.

It will gather experts and representatives of youth organizations to reflect about strategic, legislative, budgetary and administrative parameters, and those related to governance.

The first day will conceptualize the formal and informal consultation mechanisms in the Tunisian context (exchange of good - and bad - practices and experiences), and identify major projects that the National Youth Council should refer to.

The second day will be devoted to the strategy for the creation of such a Council.

The last day, young people and experts will work on the development of a logical framework matrix and work plan for the future Council.

The NET-MED Youth project is a three-year project (2014-2017) implemented by UNESCO in Eastern and Western Mediterranean countries, and funded by the European Union. It aims at mainstreaming youth issues and priorities across national decision-making and policy implementation. It seeks to achieve this by building the capacities of young people and youth organizations.
