CO-CREATE Youth Advocacy Toolkit - Launch webinar

Jun 21, 2023

Wednesday, 21 June 2023: 13:00 - 14:00pm CEST (12:00 - 13:00pm BST)

CO-CREATE is hosting a launch webinar for its new toolkit 'Youth-Led Change: A Systems Thinking Activity toolkit' - developed for youth, by youth!

Every policy starts with an idea, a vision about something that could be improved or changed. This toolkit is developed by youth for youth to learn about policy ideas through engaging activities. Its goal is for participants to find issues in their community and develop ideas on how to address them!

The event can be joined virtually or in-person, and will be based around a ‘sofa talk’ on the application of systems thinking, pressures faced by youth on social media, and the usability of the Toolkit. You will also hear about the user experience from an Oslo-based Scout Group which completed a test-run of the Toolkit in May.

Speakers & panel members:

  • Alfred Mestad Rønnestad, CO-CREATE Project Advisor
  • Arnfinn Helleve, CO-CREATE Researcher
  • Maja Enerhaug Egge, Deputy leader of Press, Save the Children Youth Norway
  • Aksel Holmsen, local Scout Leader, Oslo

The launch webinar event takes place on Wednesday 21 June, at 13.00 – 14.00 CEST/12.00 - 13.00 BST via TEAMS, please find the link to register below. You can also participate physically in "Redd Barna Huset” in Bøkkereien 2, Oslo, Norway. There will be an opportunity to get a hands-on experience after the event.
