Esplugues (Spain) Good Practice

The City Council of Esplugues develops a permanent policy of citizen participation. The municipal activity is open to citizens, following the principles of transparency and shared responsibility. There are several spaces for citizen participation. Among them are the Children's Council and the Public Youth Audience.

The Children's Council is a forum for children in 5th and 6th grade (Secondary Obligatory Education) in public schools, where they have the possibility to learn, reflect, discuss and agree on proposals related to their environment. The Public Youth Audience is addressed to students of 4th grade.

These are spaces for discussion. They generate pedagogical/educational debate and proposals for the transformation of the city. Both forums take into account the work plan that is developed in collaboration with schools and institutes, making them participants to contribute in the formation of children / youth, in values and attitudes of participation.
