Created by Restless Development and Plan UK, this toolkit explains why and how young people can be involved in governance and accountability processes and supports young people to build an advocacy plan so that they can influence the post-2015 development process. It has been created to be used in conjunction with a report by Overseas Development Institute, Restless Development and Plan UK called ‘Partners for Change. Youth and Governance in a Post-2015 World’ (September 2014).
At Restless Development we placed young people at the core of the process leading to the development of our new strategy in 2016 and brought as many youth voices as possible to the most important issues facing young people in 2015 and beyond. As a values-led agency, we leveraged our deep access to young people and wide partnerships to increase our existing expertise, draw in more insights into this process, and develop the best ideas for a radical, yet tangible, vision and strategy to guide us beyond 2016.
Young People and Governance in a Post-2015 World. Released in September 2014 in partnership with the Overseas Development Institute and Plan UK. This report demonstrates how youth participation, at all levels of decision making, builds good governance structures. It explores the opportunities and the barriers that exist for young people engaging in governance processes and supports a standalone on goal on governance in the post-2015 development agenda, with the role of young people clearly defined as part of this goal.
