The Let’s Talk Project trains youth in deliberation, turns deliberative thought into motivation to participate in policy making, and incorporates the spirit of open government to bring young people’s ideas and creativity into government administration. This enables youth to play an active role in future civil society. The main project activities are as follows:
Encourage youth aged 18 to 35 years old to form teams and submit proposals. They may hold their own Talk events within the project timeframe, or join YDA events organized in consultation with partner organizations.
2.Topic exchange meetings:
Collect consensus views reached by organizers and instructors at Talk events, invite government ministries to give briefings on current policies or plans and exchange ideas with Talk organizers, and draw up an annual policy issue map to guide follow-up discussions.
Use digital tools to summarize phase-one conclusions and issues of common concern, then reopen group discussions to go deeper into the phase-one Talk conclusions.
4.Results sharing and networking event:
Carry out an in-depth dialogue with government agencies on the suggestions proposed by young people to give the government broader perspectives when formulating future policies.
