Collaboration at Every Step
The first of the 5 Key Necessities for Youth Engagement identified by the Walking the Talk project is ‘Collaboration at Every Step’.
We asked our Collaborators during the Walking the Talk project:
- “What values do you hold when working in a collaborative space?”
- “How do young people want to be involved in designing and implementing a youth engagement strategy that aims to move the dial on meaningful youth engagement?”
- “Genuine partnership & active participation, as opposed to tokenism.”
- “Shared decision making.”
- “Active participation and engagement.”
- “Young people involved in every step of the process.”
For further detail, see the full Guide here!
We are conducting a survey for each of the Five Key Necessities to gather further information on what young people want to see from us and other organisations.

We have collated various resources about collaboration here, for both young people and organisations and services. This collection will grow as we curate further resources.
While each of the Five Necessities pages contain a Resources section, the Resources Homepage contains all resources in one place! This is a collection of various external reports, articles, guides, and videos regarding each of the Five Key Necessities.
