A new film has been launched by a team of young researchers exploring topics of interest to them and engaging with decision-makers to identify potentials for change.

YEA seeks to address the very familiar problem of children and young people's participation not having an impact on decision making. YEA has been working to change this, with young researchers exploring topics of interest to them and engaging with decision-makers to identify potentials for change. This film captures how YEA works, some of its successes -- and how it seeks to deal with the challenges.

The project sends its thanks to CEC and the University of Edinburgh's CAHSS Knowledge Exchange and Impact Grant for supporting the project.
