Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Getting children involved in decision making in their neighbourhood is important to make them and their views feel valued. This paper describes a participation process in Melbourne, Australia, where young people were asked directly what they felt about their local community and how it could be improved, and how this led to improved relations with the local council and residents.
