Active Citizens programme empowers tomorrow’s young leaders to bring about positive change to their communities in central and south Asia and the UK.
Active citizenship’ is the philosophy that citizens should work towards the betterment of their community through economic participation, public service, volunteer work, and other such efforts to improve life for all citizens.
The Active Citizens programme will:
Work with partners to provide capacity building for young people that includes; leadership, communication, advocacy, citizenship, volunteering, social action project delivery, fund-raising, entrepreneurship, partnership and network building.
Develop youth networks, both face-to-face and online, between the UK and central and south Asia, enabling young people to share their ideas, knowledge and experiences to develop new relationships and understand their roles as global citizens.
Develop youth-led social action projects where young people address their own priorities and involve people of all generations to make a positive difference to their communities. We will develop an award scheme to celebrate achievement
Facilitate policy dialogue to stimulate debate about active citizenship and youth policy and practice at national, local and community levels.
