Engaged youth policy-making:
Co-creating a future model in Sydney
March 1, 2016
The project will support the development of a partnership between the Institute for Culture and Society, the Australian Youth Affairs Coalition (AYAC) the Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre, to develop and pilot a process for two key initiatives. The first is a collaborative development of an innovative and rigorous, holistic measure of youth engagement in Australian governance and policy making and the second is to co-design a youth engagement model that will ensure that relevant public policy decisions are informed by diverse youth perspectives and engage meaningfully with young people in decision-making. To this end, the project will incorporate an exploration of the capacity of digital technologies to enhance youth engagement.
