Mr Dharmendra Kanani gave an example in his dinner speech of how the Big Lottery Fund (http://www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/) involved and trained 20 young people to allocate 100.000 GBP to projects (see www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9anem4dKQI or http://bigblog.org.uk/).
Dharmendra said that adults are often afraid to give away power to young people. But how can young people fully participate if they are not taken serious… ? So we had a closer look during the World Café at how we can truefully involve young people in our work and give them power – rather than talking about participation as ‘decoration’.
