What makes a successful engagement project for young people?

The HUWY project want to know about your ideas of successful engagement and participation processes –i.e. projects that aim to get people’s opinions/ help people to influence decisions/consult people.

To find this out, we've created 3 questionnaires -one for young people, one for youth workers and one for policy-makers.

It would be really great if you could follow the links below and fill in these short questionnaires (Easy: 8 questions, multiple choice)

Young people

This questionnaire is to help us find out about the kind of things that happen in engagement projects which would make you feel that the project was a success and that your involvement achieved something. We want to find out what is more or less important to you.

After our current engagement project (HUWY) has been running for a bit, we can then use this information to decide if it’s successful on your terms.

Youth workers

We want to know about your ideas of successful engagement and participation processes –i.e. projects that aim to get people’s opinions/ help people influence decisions/consult people. It is likely that you have worked with young people on many similar projects and listened to their reactions afterwards and this is the information that we are looking for.

This questionnaire is to help us find out about the kind of things that happen in engagement projects which (in your experience) would make young people say that the project was a success and that their involvement achieved something. We want to find out what is more or less important to young people in this context.

After our current engagement project (HUWY) has been running for a bit, we can then use this information to decide if it’s successful on young people’s terms.

Policy-makers

We want to know about your ideas of successful engagement and participation processes –i.e. projects that aim to get people’s opinions/ help people influence decisions/consult people. We are particularly concerned with processes which aim to get input from young people.

This questionnaire is to help us find out about the kind of things that happen in engagement projects which (in your experience) would make policy-makers feel that the project was a success and that their involvement achieved something. We want to find out what is more or less important to you in this context.

After the HUWY project has been running for a bit, we can then use this list to decide if it’s successful on both policy-makers’ and young people’s terms.

The HUWY project aims to get young people talking about policies and laws which affect the Internet and channel their ideas to governments and parliaments, national and EU using Hub websites. HUWY wants to achieve this through a distributed discussion:
