The Coordination Team of CDN’s “Urban Steps for Resilient Future – Building Youth Activism in Eastern Europe” Annual Work Plan met in Istanbul between 25 and 29 January 2018.
The team spent three long working days in preparing the first phase of the project, a kick-ass “Training for Trainers” for all youth activist from Eastern Europe! The Training for Trainers will take place in Istanbul, Turkey from 24-29 April 2018.

CDN and its Alternative Urbanization Working Group are announcing a call for members of the international Coordination Team of our Annual Work Plan “Urban Steps for Resilient Future – Building Youth Activism in Eastern Europe”. The project is a follow up of CDN’s Study Session in the European Youth Center Budapest from 2016 titled “Reclaim Your City” and aims to explore Urban activism as an entry point for youth participation, to help young people turn their ideas into concrete actions and to enable young people to articulate their political demands to the local authorities and stakeholders. The full project description can be found HERE.
Coordination Team members are going to coordinate the Annual Work Plan and all its activities – Training of Trainers, Regional Trainings and Local Action – with a full support of a member of CDN Secretariat and Executive Committee respectively.
We are looking for young people that are passionate about alternative ways of urbanization, fair, inclusive and green cities, youth participation in political decision making, as well as the values of the Green movement.
