Youth and sustainable co-creative citizenship

This research focuses on youths’ terms, possibilities and knowledge for active democratic citizenship. In Lindberg & Persson’s (2013) report on Youths’ relationship to democra- cy a need for further research in the eld emerges. e report calls for more qualitative studies as a complement to various national and international longitudinal, quantitative studies. e aim of the present study is to ll this gap in the eld through qualitative in-
terview data collected during spring 2014. e respondents are from the region of Gäv- leborg in Sweden and from Ostrobothnia in Finland. One of the purposes of this study is also to discern similarities and di erences in the youths’ views on active democratic citizenship in the two Nordic neighbouring countries Sweden and Finland. e research group presents the rst preliminary results at the conference in Lund.
