REJUVENATE is a project led by a team at IDS and UHI that seeks to re-energise the field of child and youth rights in social justice processes, through a growing network of child rights actors.
As part of our project, we are hosting a series of Grounded Dialogues. This is the fourth dialogue in the series.
There are many of us who believe that we should push for the participation of children and youth, simply because it’s their right to be heard and included in decision-making. But there is also an argument to say that their participation contributes to better outcomes, not just for children and youth, but for whole communities.
How can monitoring and evaluation serve accountability to different stakeholders? Why do we measure what, for whom? And how can we include children and young people in these processes?
Speakers will offer brief reflections followed by an open discussion with participants.
