INVITATION TO WEBINAR: From insight to impact - embracing child-centred approach in research with children

Updated: Feb 13

Join us for free online webinar on 28 February 2024, 11am-1pm CET, devoted to presenting and discussing the use of child-centred approach in the research. The webinar is aimed at PhD students, researchers, policy makers and practitioners.

The webinar will focus on the child-centred approach, which places children at the centre of the research and perceives them as competent actors and co-creators of their lives. The child-centred approach represents a shift from the prevailing adult-centred approach towards an approach that considers children and their experience.

The webinar is part of COORDINATE project which brings together community of researchers working to improve child wellbeing. Children are increasingly becoming active agents in research projects. COORDINATE project demonstrates that it is feasible to engage children meaningfully in large, complex projects and research infrastructures. It highlights the importance of active engagement of children and young people, both as research participants and research advisors.
