The number of youth democracy projects (national and trans-national) carried out by young people themselves and the number of young people participating in those projects within Action 1.2 "Youth Initiative" of "Youth in Action" programme.
A Youth Initiative is a project initiated, set up and carried out by young people themselves. It gives young people the chance to try out ideas through initiatives, which give them an opportunity to be directly and actively involved in planning and carrying out projects. Participation in a Youth Initiative is an important non-formal learning experience. It also provides young people with an opportunity to consider themselves as European citizens and to feel that they are contributing to the construction of Europe.
