The Joint Council on Youth along with the Council of Europe, through the Youth Department is inviting applicants for its 2016 World Forum for Democracy to focus on how education can help bridge the social divide and become a real asset for our diverse democracies.

The World Forum for Democracy is a unique platform for political decision-makers and activists to debate solutions to key challenges for democracies worldwide. By identifying and analysing experimental initiatives and practices, the Forum highlights and encourages democracy innovations at the grassroots and their transfer on a systemic level in order to strengthen the foundations of democratic societies. The Forum thus contributes to the evolution of democracy towards more participatory and inclusive structures and institutions.
