Upcoming thematic meeting:
Share-Net Netherlands kindly invites you for a thematic meeting on meaningful youth participation in SRHR research, policy and practice. This virtual meeting is organised by Share-Net Netherlands in collaboration with CHOICE for Youth & Sexuality (CHOICE).
When? Tuesday, 22. September 2020 at 14.00 – 15.30 CEST
Where? Online via Zoom
How to register? Please RSVP via the following link.
Young people are frequently the target group in many sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) initiatives. Yet too often, such policies and programs are made about young people rather than with them, causing them to target perceived rather than actual needs. This mismatch has led to increased calls for meaningful youth participation (MYP).
MYP means that young people can participate on equal terms with adults, or work independently, in organisations as well as in all stages of programming and policy-making: design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. When participation of young people is truly meaningful, it benefits the young people, the program, policy or organisation, and society as a whole.
The aim of this meeting is twofold:
Our intention is for everyone to walk away with context-relevant next steps to walk the talk of MYP inside participants’ own organisations and the Share-Net network.
Please see the full programme including more information about speakers and topics here.
Furthermore, Share-Net Netherlands is looking for a young student, artist or researcher who would be interested in preparing a creative knowledge product highlighting the main outputs from this webinar (this could be a blog, visualisation, video, etc.).
