Spaces to be, learn and create

In the Youth for the City, City for Youth project, Lublin creates and supports youth spaces for young people in the city.

Children and young people need open and inclusive local spaces both to feel included in their local community, socialize with peers, and to strengthen key competences for participating in society. Inclusive and free youth centers and spaces are particularly important for young people from lower socio-economic background.

According to Youth Work Norway, local youth spaces are a key to fulfill article 12 and 31 of the Convention of the Rights of the Child. Children should have the right to express their opinions and their opinions should be taken seriously, and every child has the right to rest, relax, play and to take part in cultural and creative activities.
