Young people, politics and the future direction of youth engagement in Wale...
The day will bring researchers, practitioners and young people together from across Wales to discuss the future direction of youth engagement under a new Welsh Government. The purpose is to provide research and tools for engaging young people in politics during the fifth Assembly government and to generate discussion about future research in this area.
Participants will benefit from the information, findings and discussion. More importantly they will have the chance to feed into future research project design by raising what they feel to be most important and useful in current youth engagement information and practice.
The day will open with short presentations on current research findings followed by the screening of two short film resources for practitioners, made with young people, then a Q&A. The second part of the day will involve group discussions to help shape the future direction of research on youth engagement.
The event is run in partnership between the Wales Institute for Social and Economic Research Data and Methods (WISERD) at Cardiff University, Youth Cymru (Llais Ifanc) and the Council for Wales of Voluntary Youth Services (CWVYS). It is sponsored jointly by Alun Davies AM, Bethan Jenkins AM, Darren Millar AM and supported by the National Assembly for Wales Youth Engagement Team.
