What we Achieved
- Comparison accross Europe
The working group collects research, practices, tools and research accross Europe helping children and young people to express their opinion, to be listened to and to participate. We have analysed them and made them accessible for dissemination throughout Europe
The tools and reserech from the two seminars held in France and Italy are now shared with other researchers and practitioners . This has led to the development of life books in France and training in the use of some tools in other countries. The working group has presented these in the seminar in Lille, France ("Sur le fil de "l histoire de vie) in December 2016, .
The group works on a factsheet about the collected research and tools for wider dissemination accross Europe.
Work in progress
Research and good practice models about including children in decisionmaking are being studied and laid down in another factsheet.
Please send us information about your country to contribute to this work!
Life books were collected from Norway, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Belgium and the United Kingdom. Research about the importance of life books is presented and discussed.
They are compared, under different topics, analysed and good ideas discussed. This work led to the development of a national format for a Lifebook in France that will be launched in Lille in December 2016. It will come with training and the first trainings are already booked.
The group looked at a range of publications and new digital methods to make life books.
Interactive methods are collected and described.
