You are invited to participate in our project to collect case studies of successful projects and initiatives on how to involve children and young people in improving their health and wellbeing.
The collection and analysis of case studies is part of a global initiative on genuine participation of children and young people in health promotion. The case studies will help us to improve, test and implement models and approaches for children’s and young people’s genuine participation in the future. They will be included in a publication, edited by Professor Didier Jourdan, chair holder of the UNESCO Chair Global Health & Education, and colleagues.
Tomorrow's world needs to be created together with children and young people. Their genuine participation is crucial: ‘nothing about them without them’. We know that many activities, projects and research initiatives on active participation of children and young people concerning their health and well-being have taken place and are being developed all over the world. The UNESCO Chair Global Health & Education has taken the initiative to identify and map the evidence of the effectiveness of genuine participation of children and young people in health and well-being.
