The Hertie project "Jugend Entscheidet" starts:
Ten municipalities entrust youths with political decisions.
Young people are passionate about politics, want to have their say and make decisions. But what do they have to say about local political issues? What do they think about issues that affect their lives right on their doorstep? The Hertie Foundation is now launching the project 'Jugend Entscheidet - Das Hertie-Programm für innovative Kommunen' with ten municipalities, for which 115 applied.
The complete press release and the municipalities in the first round of the project in German can be found here.
