Recap of Our Kick-off Online Meeting

We kicked-off the journey to Ghent with an online meeting “Empowering young people as active participants and decision-makers in community foundations: from fundamentals (why) to examples of practice (how)”, where along with representatives of Elevate Children Funders Group, we explored the fundamentals of their toolkit, Weaving a collective tapestry – A funders toolkit for child and youth participation, which aims to build an appreciation of the value of meaningful involvement of children and young people, and to offer ways to improve practice.
