Event description

Description

This workshop will take place on the 13th March 2018 at the Hilton Garden Inn - Dublin Custom House in Dublin between 11am3pm and is part of a wider stakeholder engagement process which is being held in Galway, Dublin, Belfast and London.

Having contributed to this important research as an interviewee, focus group participant, advisor, or supporter, we would very much like to share with you our emerging findings and get your feedback and thoughts about them and their implications for improving policy and practice. The aim of the project is to highlight how best we can successfully engage young people particularly those from disadvantaged or marginalized backgrounds in civic and political life.

The main aim of the study is to explore how young people from 3 cities (London, Belfast, and Dublin) engage with civic and political systems and how best to promote their positive engagement. We worked with colleagues in Galway as a pilot site for the project. This includes an investigation of the policies, organizations, and programs that seek to promote youth civic and political engagement and the views and experiences of young people themselves.

The aims of the workshop are to:

  • Present main findings so far and consult with stakeholders about them.

  • Seek feedback and comments on the findings to inform our final report.

  • Discuss possible recommendations for practice and policy at the local, national, and International level.

The format of the workshop will include presentations of study findings followed by focused discussion with participants, who will include practitioners, policy makers, and young people.

Please feel free to invite others you think would be particularly interested in contributing to the discussion, particularly including any young people with whom you work”

This is a Free Event. CPD certificates / Letters of Participation will be provided upon request.
