Sample text

The need to include children through an understanding of their unique cultural practices is further reinforced by the Scottish Youth Parliament’s (SYP) manifesto, which states: We want to be different. We want to make the views of young people heard to those people who should be listening to us, but we want to do it in a thoroughly innovative way. We recognise that traditional models don’t always work and it is our belief people should be able to make a difference in a way that suits them – we think it’s possible to make the whole process interesting and exciting!

We recognise that traditional models don’t always work and it is our belief people should be able to make a difference in a way that suits them – we think it’s possible to make the whole process interesting and exciting!

Within this realm we begin to see the starting point of a view of children as competent and able to construct their own cultural practices outside the adult domain.

Within this realm we begin to see the starting point of a view of children as competent and able to construct their own cultural practices outside the adult domain. Given the everyday practicalities and challenges of participatory projects, though, this more idealistic approach may not always be achievable. Children are cast in the role of children as social actors. Children are viewed as being competent in relation to experience and recognised as being ‘experts’ in their own lives and, most importantly, as capable of being ‘change agents’ or active citizens in transforming their world.
