Almost half of the population of Tunisia is under the age of 30, according to numbers, but many face considerable barriers to participation in decision making, particularly on issues of concern, such as security or employment. Ahead of the International Youth Day festivals in Ben Guerdane and Dehiba, the Danish Demining Group calls on communities to come together to promote youth as leaders in building a peaceful future.
DDG, in partnership with local youth from Ben Guerdane and Dehiba and with support from the European Union, marks International Youth Day with an event acknowledging the contributions of local youth towards community initiatives for community security. Bringing together young people, community members and decision makers, the festival is a space for interaction where participants can voice their experiences and share their ideas.
Such events are important as they empower young people. DDG has worked directly with communities in southeast Tunisia since , with local offices in Ben Guerdane and Dehiba. During this time DDG has engaged the youth of Ben Guerdane and Dehiba through community workshops, dialogue, and civic engagement initiatives, such as football matches, painting days and coffee talks.
These activities have been key in bringing together diverse youth and creating unique networks for creativity and peer-support. DDG Tunisia is dedicated to putting youth at the centre of its activities, recognising their potential as active community members with unique and valuable perspectives. The organisation will continue to support the youth of Ben Guerdane and Dehiba in this process and provide concrete assistance through action planning workshops and youth-driven community initiatives for community safety throughout As a substantial component of this work, DDG has developed a comprehensive evidence base through extensive qualitative research and youth-driven actor mapping workshops.
The findings offer deep insight into youth perceptions of risk and resilience and the actors who influence them. These workshops will give youth a space to develop community interventions to assist themselves, their peers, and their communities in building resilience and creating safer societies.
