Young people should be actively involved in decision making by councils to help provide better services, according to a joint report from the Local Government Association and the National Youth Agency.
Hear by right argues the active involvement of young people can lead to the provision of better services and policies geared to their needs, and sets out standards for councils to meet.
LGA chair Sir Jeremy Beecham said: 'The future of local democracy lies in the hands of our young people. We ignore them at our peril.'
Anthony Lawton of the NYA said: 'We're highlighting the role young people can play in local democracy. Many young people care passionately about society but are frustrated by their lack of a voice.'
