Changing our World
We are the children and young people's advisory group for Children in Scotland, with current members aged 8-25, all with different backgrounds, ideas, experiences and views.
"We are mortals who solve stuff."
We have regular meetings to offer our perspectives and experiences to Children in Scotland to make their work more relevant to children's lives.
What is Changing our World?
"We are an advisory group; we try to solve stuff."
"We share experiences from our lives and we get to express ourselves."
We share our experiences, opinions and ideas so that children and young people are heard in Children in Scotland’s decision-making, at strategic level and at a practise level.
Changing our World also tries to influence decision-makers to make Scotland a better place for young people. We ask them to make pledges about what they do to help improve Scotland for young people. We give them our advice and ideas so they take them and use them in their work.
- We want to achieve things to have a say in our future.
- Change that can be measured.
- We want to be involved in decisions that affect us. We don't want to make all the decisions, but we want to influence them.
- Better representation for young people and children across the country.
What does Changing our World do? And how?
The advisory group means children and young people's voices can be heard and represented where they should be – where important decisions about our future are being made.
