The initiative involves three strands of activity:
Associated activities are spearheaded by the Learning for Well-being Foundation at international level, and by its strategic partners at national and local levels.
ACT2gether was born from out of what we learned of co-hosting Children as Actors Transforming Society (C.A.T.S.) *, an annual event dedicated to children’s participation for children and adults from all over the world. After 6 editions, the foundation wanted to explore ways in which it could encourage others to engage children in decision-making and unleash the transformative power of working together across generations.
*in partnership with the Initiatives of Change France and Initiatives of Change Switzerland
The Learning for Well-being Foundation and Eurochild have published a toolbox that offers practical activities to help children, and adults who support them, preparing for roles as participants, representatives and facilitators, in events where children and adults work together for the improvement of their communities.
The publication entitled “We Are Here. – A child participation Toolbox” combines a rights and well-being perspective on children’s participation and promotes a partnership approach, highlighting the contributions of both children and adults in the process.
The activities in the Toolbox have been developed by the two organisations based on their long-term collaboration in supporting children in international events over the past few years. Eurochild’s Children’s Council were involved in developing and piloting several of the activities.
The publication is available online for free in both Eurochild and the Learning for Well-being’s websites.
