We carry most of our activities through mutually reinforcing partnerships aimed at catalysing change at local, national or international levels. Partnership happens between organisations and individuals coming from different sectors and disciplines, but also between different generations.
We aim to reach a critical mass of partners that can help create a new narrative for children’s well-being and participation and provide the evidence needed in order to create social change. We do this by creating spaces that allow for everyone involved to cultivate their core capacities in a more refined way so as to understand themselves more deeply, relate to each other with kindness and partner for change.
Examples of partnering development activities include:
In fields like community development, citizenship and democracy, education, health or even peacebuilding, there is evidence that child participation can create greater impact and well-being for everyone involved, and that mutually supportive relationships between children and adults are a critical condition for children to realise their participation rights.
ACT2gether applies the Learning for Well-being approach, contextualising it to specific themes with adult & children’s participation, helping them partner to create social change through a more refined use of core capacities.
