The project Mitgestalten! promotes a variety of activities for more social participation of children and young people. In cooperation with local partners in Ukraine, Georgia, Russia and Armenia, the DRA was able to strengthen democracy competences and realize future perspectives in social participation of over 50,000 young people. In youth forums and educational trips participants, in cooperation with UNICEF, worked on a curriculum for education professionals. Together with local experts, a four-language method manual on youth participation was created. A total of 750 participatory projects were organized.
