Youth councils and youth parliaments as established forms of youth participation appear increasingly hidebound. Emerging literature on participatory democracy, like the various forms of agonistic pluralism, provide fruitful grounds to design new formats for youth agency. Such an approach has been developed at the City of Helsinki. It is based on the ideas of (1) promoting open access for all, (2) endorsing variety of expression and (3) creating dialogical space for young people to negotiate with decision makers.

Keywords:   Youth participation, youth councils, democracy deficit, agonistic pluralism, dialogic space
