Radical Shift: Valuing young people's expertise in youth engagement

This workshop will challenge participants to rethink their assumptions about the role of young people who have experienced disadvantage in driving organisational, sectoral, social and systemic change.

Using a combination of practice experience collaborating with young people to develop and run innovative youth engagement initiatives (i.e. Y-Change), and the learnings drawn from a recent Churchill fellowship (report available here) examining young people's role in driving social change, Lauren will lead participants through a series of interactive activities that inspire a radical shift away from traditional approaches to youth engagement.
