Children and Young People’s Panel on Europe

by:

What did we do

Children in Scotland worked in partnership with Together (the Scottish Alliance for Children’s Rights) to support the engagement of children and young people in decision making about Britain’s exit from the EU.
We supported a group of 19 children and young people aged 8 – 19 to share their views and come up with recommendations for what they wanted to happen as the UK left the EU.

LEAP Cluj

by:

What did we do

We delivered a comprehensive, multi- and inter-disciplinary assessment of the needs and opportunities for young people in the Cluj metropolitan area, guided by an ecosystem view and oriented towards future initiatives stemming from the results of the assessment. The project will deliver an evidence-informed, tech-enabled repository of data, actors and initiatives in the areas of health and well-being, and education and future of work in the Cluj metropolitan area, with a participatory and inclusive approach. Different aspects of the research and the formulation of policy proposals were provided through participatory mechanisms involving young people and stakeholders, too. Data and proposals are put at the base of future action in the Cluj Metro Area during a 10-year lifespan.
