Share-Net Netherlands kindly invites you for a thematic meeting on meaningful youth participation in SRHR research, policy and practice. This meeting is organised by Share-Net Netherlands in collaboration with CHOICE for Youth & Sexuality (CHOICE).
Young people are frequently the target group in many sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) initiatives. Yet too often, such policies and programs are made about young people rather than with them, causing them to target perceived rather than actual needs. This mismatch has led to increased calls for meaningful youth participation (MYP).
Part 1: Key note talks
1. Setting the scene: Introduction to MYP - Presentation by Roos van Kreij (Programme coordinator at CHOICE)
2. State of the Art: MYP within Share-Net - Presentation by Carys Stirling (Share-Net International intern)
3. Identified challenges and best practices for Youth-Adult Partnerships - Presentation by Filipa Oitavén (Social Researcher/Consultant for CHOICE)
Part 2: Group work
Break-out in smaller groups: To collect experiences and ideas about how to advance MYP within participants’ organisation as well as formulating recommendations for Share-Net Netherlands
Part 3: Plenary Q&A session
Follow up questions and discussion: Inspired by the key note talks and consequent reflection in smaller groups, participants can pose resulting questions to the speakers.
Furthermore, Share-Net Netherlands is looking for a young student, artist or researcher who would be interested in preparing a creative knowledge product highlighting the main outputs from this webinar (this could be a blog, visualisation, video, etc.). There is a lump sum of 250EUR available and you can apply via this registration form by 20th of September (applications are accepted on a rolling basis). If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Hannah Kabelka at firstname.lastname@example.org!
