’We Are Here. A Child Participation Toolbox’, offers a practical set of tools to implement meaningful children’s participation and encourage collaboration between generations in a variety of settings.

Throughout the 6 modules of the Toolbox, the user is guided on how to run sessions with children and adults on topics including participation, representation, facilitation and evaluation, whilst also giving explanations of different aspects of child participation.

Activities in the Toolbox use a creative approach to help answer questions children might ask themselves as they prepare to play a role in a project and explain the important conditions for children to participate meaningfully and safely.

It is designed to be a flexible and practical set of tools, aimed at guiding, inspiring and encouraging the user to implement meaningful child participation in a way that is tailored to them, their needs and their context.

The Toolbox is co-produced by Eurochild and the Learning for Well-being Foundation.
