Erasmus+ RESOLVE: New Youth Order Online Dialogue Activity

The RESOLVE: New Youth Order Online Dialogue Activity provides an opportunity for young people to engage with decision-makers on a local, national and international basis to share their thoughts, opinions and participate in democratic practices.
