Changing our World

What is Changing our World?

We are the children and young peoples's advisory group for Children in Scotland, with current members aged 9-23, 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.

What does Changing our World do? And how?

"We are an advisory group; we try to solve stuff."
"We share experiences from our lives and we get to express ourselves."

Changing our World members share their 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 general level.

Changing our World tries to influence decision-makers to make Scotland a better place for young people by asking them to make pledges about what they do to help improve Scotland for young people. And we give them our advice and ideas so they take them and use them in their work.

What does Changing our World hope to achieve?

  • 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 decisionsbut we want to influence them.
  • Better representation for young people and children across the country.
