Series: Corruption Fighters' ToolKit

This special edition of the Corruption Fighters' Tool Kit presents a diverse collection of youth education experiences mainly from civil society organisations. Although approaching the topic from different angles, including moral or value education, human rights and civic education, they all have a common goal: strengthening young people's attitudes and demands for accountability, and ultimately, to build trust in government and the public sector. The projects documented vary in the following ways: first, they address different age groups; second, they are both inside and outside the formal education system and, third, while most of them originate from civil society, a few are carried out by public bodies. All contributions illustrate novel ways of changing attitudes and mindsets, when accompanied by necessary public sector reforms. The projects presented do not represent ready made solutions. Instead, this collection of experiences provides ideas for possible approaches to strengthening youth's attitudes and capacity to resist corruption.
