Youth as Evaluators - Contested Spaces and Identity
This video presents a series of interviews recorded at a 2005 international youth conference in Northern Ireland.
Public Achievement in Northern Ireland hosted the first international gathering of young people involved in Public Achievement and similar programmes around the world at the Corrymeela Centre, Ballycastle, Northern Ireland 11 - 22 August 2005. The focus of the event was on training participants as evaluators of their youth programmes at home, and on creating an international network of young people interested in improving young people’s experience of being civic co-creators.
Eighty young people participated in the event from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Turkey, Serbia, Croatia, Albania, Finland, Netherlands, Northern Ireland and the United States of America. The group taught and learnt from each other – each delegation prepared information about their country and the issues young people face there.
