In URI we celebrate the work and leadership of young people and are committed to working towards equity and fair age representation in all aspects of our work. With this in mind, we are happy to share with you the outcome of a collaborative process which took place over the course of last year (2021) - the first edition of the URI Toolkit for Meaningful Youth Participation.
You can download the Toolkit here: https://www.uri.org/youthparticipationtoolkit
This Toolkit has been designed for people of all ages who would like to better understand some of the challenges of youth inclusion and discover practical steps to create more meaningful relationships across generations.
It has been put together through a collaborative effort from young people across the URI network, and includes stories and experiences of URI member groups. A big thank you to all those who contributed their stories and ideas for this first edition!
Our intention is for this Toolkit to be a living document, which energizes the conversations and learnings around how we can do better at including the voices, experiences and skills of young people in our work for peace and justice across the world.
Your feedback, ideas and experiences are welcome! If you have a story or experience that you would like potentially included in this toolkit or suggestions for future editions, please contact [email protected].
