Since its foundation, Habitat has executed many projects and campaigns in the field of management to increase the participation of all groups in local and national decision-making mechanisms. During the Local Agenda 21 Program that ended in 2011, it made major contributions to the formation of city councils and youth parliaments to support youth participation in decision-making mechanisms.
The main focus of the governance program is to streamline the participation of social groups in decision-making mechanisms, and to increase the activity and effectiveness of their participation in the aforementioned processes. To that end, the program provides methods and tools that expedite and streamline participation processes and plays the role of mediator between participants and decision-makers. Through its innovative joint initiatives with other Habitat programs, the management program also tries to develop new approaches towards management mechanisms.
Habitat supports the continuity and sustainability of the National Parliament of Youth (UGP), which Habitat has played an important role in founding and which has been a meeting platform since 2004 for youth organizations active in various fields.
