We are excited to inform you that next year's IDEA International Youth Forum will take place in Zeeland Province in the Netherlands. While the Youth Forum will be supported by the Province of Zeeland, IDEA will organize it in collaboration with its partner organization, Scoop.
IDEA and Scoop have been implementing the Debate in the Neighborhood Project (DIN) since 2008, and the forum will build on the energy and excitement that the DIN project has generated. Debate in the Neighborhood aims to provide youth in disadvantaged neighborhoods with skills and knowledge necessary to understand the democratic participation, and have the means to participate in decision making processes.
We will be updating you about the progress of the preparations, exact dates, location and venue in the coming weeks.
