The Centre for Children and Young People’s Participation at the University of Central Lancashire is building an online library of research, evidence and advice developed through participatory projects by and with children. The Centre is asking people to share their examples of best practice.

As evidence and advice from children and young people’s participation in public decision-making activities often gets lost, the digital library will allow the Centre to showcase projects which will allow policymakers and academics in Europe to follow children and young people’s goals for action.

The Centre is looking for inspiring examples of the following activities:

  • Participatory research
  • Contributing to changes in local, national or international government decision-making
  • Examples of how research and participation has led to change

With their website currently under construction, please fill in their survey here to submit your project to be showcased.
