 What is Keeping Democracy Alive?

When saying that we let young people take the lead in their own learning, we mean it. The Keeping Democracy Alive 2nd edition was fully developed by young people of the Youth Council of Overijssel in the Netherlands. 

Now it is your chance to enroll and go through the journey of discovery of how you can make your voice heard. The KDA programme empowers you to take an active part in democratic life; “keep democracy alive”. We want you to experience that you have the power to make a change in “democratic life”, and that creating a change actually can be fun!

What can you expect/learn during the programme?

  • You will learn about democracy and active participation and understand that all young people have power to make a change in democratic life.
  • You will hear local examples of participation in democratic and decision making processes from youngsters your age from 4 different countries
  • You will learn strategies/methods how to take democratic action in your own local reality and have a bigger impact
  • You will learn how to communicate and cooperate with your peers from other cultures (you will improve your English as well as your body language 😉 ) that will result in a bigger European network
  • With the exchange you will learn how to articulate your opinion and values, be more independent and speak publicly
  • You will discover your talents within the roles of change making

Who are we expecting to the programme?

  • For the youth exchange we invite a group of 5 youngsters (17-20) and 2 group leaders (18+, with more experience about the topic) per organization that are already active on working on the topic (or have high interest in it).
  • For the advance planning visit we would like to meet 1 of the group leaders and 1 participant per organization.
  • We look for motivated participants that would like to continue working on the topic beyond the exchange and use the gained knowledge.

Practical details & process

  • Food and shelter 😉 will be covered 100%
  • Travel costs will be reimbursed according to the Erasmus+ funding rules
  • There is a participation fee of 25 euro per participant (group leaders do not need to pay this fee). This amount will be deducted from the travel reimbursement.


Keeping Democracy Alive! 2nd edition is a collaborative programme of The Youth Company and the Youth Council of Overijssel.

The Youth Council of Overijssel is a group of 17 youngsters that try to make provincial politics more accessible for young people in our province. They give advices to municipalities and the province over a wide range of subjects, from improvement of city to giving workshops about the workings of regional politics. Besides this they often organize debating contests, to help youngsters join the debate about several issues that are taking place in the region.

The Youth Company offers a platform for young people, in which the development and discovery of talents, skills and competence is crucial. The Youth Company stimulates young people to take the lead in their own learning. Our methods are based on non-formal education and learning will almost always take place in an international group.
