Children’s rights, participation and engagement
Free member event
About this event
This full-day session is co-hosted by ACVO (Third Sector Interface in Aberdeen). It will cover the theory of children and young people’s participation, based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). You will gain insights into how we gather children and young people’s views by exploring commonly used participative methodologies.
This training event is underpinned by Children in Scotland's recently updated principles and guidelines for meaningful participation and engagement.
- Developing an understanding of the theory of children and young people’s participation in decision-making (based on the UNCRC)
- Exploring and experiencing participative exercises, based around the work of Children in Scotland and partner organisations
- Critically assessing commonly used participative methodologies.
