Existence of a national strategy to increase young people's political and civil society participation

Norway does not have a national strategy to increase young people's political and civil society participation. However, youth participation is an important component of Norway's overall youth policy initiatives as expressed in the Government’s 2015 plan on child and youth policy initiatives. The document states that all children and young people should be provided with opportunities for participation and influence. The importance of youth participation is also expressed in the national budget and through earmarked funding for youth organisations.
