Klaipėda Youth Forum

The Klaipėda Youth Forum is open to local youth, regardless of their position or membership in youth policy structures. The forum is relevant for those who want to get acquainted with youth policy and participate in it, in order to create and act for the benefit of their own and the rest of Klaipėda city’s youth.

The goal of this strategic initiative is to find out what is relevant to the youth of Klaipėda and to contribute to the development of concrete solutions and proposals for the municipality. This new platform aims to provide active urban youth with a space where they can raise their concerns, solve problems and make suggestions.

The forum functions as a bank of ideas and a group of young experts, who could help Klaipėda city structures work with young people with their ideas and initiatives. This strategic initiative was intended to further strengthen the youth’s voice and provide young people with space, tools, opportunities and support for engagement and participation in civic processes.

Participatory budget of the Klaipėda city

Participatory budget is a tool that gives residents the right to decide for themselves how to spend part of the city budget. The most important thing is to present an attractive idea worthy of the support of other community members on how to improve public infrastructure in the living environment, and the city municipality will take care of the implementation of the winning proposal.

Last year, during the implementation of the participatory budget, the citizens of Klaipėda submitted 17 ideas. Among the most popular are proposals to install children’s playgrounds, sports and recreation areas, as well as proposals to plant pine trees throughout the city, to install flower gardens, a parking lot, to paint the walls of an apartment building, etc. Although some ideas were really worthy of attention, they did not make it to the final round of voting because they did not receive the support of the residents.

Just like last year, you can submit your project ideas and vote for the initiatives you like the most on a special online platform https://vazóvik.klaipeda.lt/. All the information you need about participatory budgeting can be found here.
