Research undertaken by Lemos&Crane on how young people can work together on human rights, citizenship, equality to create a better society. The report provides recommendations on the help and support young people need to achieve this.
Contrary to the general view, events in their local communities and internationally are of concern to young people, according to this new City Parochial Foundation report from Lemos&Crane
Different World also reveals that while national politics do not interest them as much, young people are prepared to do something about their concerns.
The report calls for a new consensus on the content and purpose of youth work to be based on citizenship, social change and the creation of a better world.
Youth work practitioners need to be more creative in working with young people, making more use of positive peer-influence, the arts and sport, commercial marketing methods, and new media communications such as texting and blogging, the report also suggests.
