Good practice database

A “good practice” can be defined as follows:

"A good practice is not only a practice that is good, but a practice that has been proven to work well and produce good results, and is therefore recommended as a model. It is a successful experience, which has been tested and assessed, in the broad sense, which has been repeated and deserves to be shared so that a greater number of people can adopt it."

The following set of criteria will help us select “good practice” in youth participation in the democratic process for the target group of professionals in education and social work with young people at risk between 16-25. The good practices we want to select have as an objective to promote democratic dialogue, youth involvement in order to promote civic participation, prevention of marginalization, school absenteeism and drop out. The practices should be in accordance to democratic and humanitarian values. They have to respond to the following criteria:

  1. Effective

  2. Gender and culture sensitive

  3. Doable

  4. Participatory

  5. Replicable and adaptable

  6. Assesed
