Young people from Changefactory meet decision-makers in Nittedal and Voss

In the fall of 2023, Changefactory received support from the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe for a tool aimed at improving the accuracy of decisions and thus increasing the quality of systems for children and youth. This is done by inviting young people to develop a tool for political and administrative decision-makers to receive summarised advice directly from children and young people themselves. The advice can be part of the knowledge foundation for decisions that are important to them. This simultaneously contributes to ensuring the human rights of children and young people as a group.

In February and March, young people and adults from Changefactory visited decision-makers in two municipalities. During the meetings, young people presented concrete proposals on how politicians and decision-makers can involve MANY, DIFFERENT children and young people in important decisions the municipality needs to make. The young people then engaged in a dialogue with the decision-makers on how these tools can be used in practice.

THANK YOU to the decision-makers in Nittedal and Voss who are participating in this exciting work!
