Welcome to UP2YOUTH: Youth - actor of social change


"Our Work. Our Place. Our Future." Print
This is the slogan under which Bristol City Council is running a programme within the European Community‘s URBAN II initiative. Based on an area of South Bristol young people are in the driving seat of a appr. 10m € programme for urban regeneration.
The focus of the project is to improve living conditions for all local people by engaging the skills, enthusiasm and qualities of local young people. The majority of projects funded under the programme is run by or dedicated to young people which is unique in European urban regeneration funds. The steering committee of the programme consists of a majority of young people. City council officers state: “We believe that they are the future and as such, they should be the source of solutions to local issues. Too often, they are seen as the cause of problems, but they are often the victims of systemic failure that goes back across decades.”
