ODI, Plan, Restless Development

Report on how confidence and communication skills give young people a voice. 

This report [explores] how evidence from young people’s involvement in governance processes can provide lessons and guidance for the post-2015 framework for sustainable development. This includes understanding its mechanisms to ensure accountability, which can enable active citizen participation by young people, focusing on the role that they can, and should, play. It looks at young people’s participatory governance across different areas, including education, anti-corruption, local decision-making on young people’s issues, and environmental awareness. It demonstrates that young people are interested and engaged in the various thematic issues that affect their lives and their communities, and can participate as active citizens in national and local governance processes to help achieve better outcomes for all.
