Participation and Engagement

Elevating young voices in decisions that affect them

To effectively respond to contemporary policy challenges, we need authorities and institutions to engage more broadly and deeply with young people. We are developing technology-based strategies to boost young people’s participation in civic and political processes, and the capacity of governments and other organisations to respond to their needs and views. We believe in more young voices at the table and are investigating how to leverage digital media to creatively engage young people, no matter their circumstances.
