Publication year:

This document is a chapter from a book titled "Resident Involvement and Community Action". The chapter looks at the involvement of younger residents in community action, and starts by examining this in the context of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child. It goes on to look at children and young people's needs and perspectives, explores some key principles and methods of participation and looks at examples where children have participated. It concludes that planning activities rarely consult children, yet their inclusion in resident participation brings benefits for all involved.
