This one-day conference is part of the knowledge-sharing and dissemination phase of the ESRC Knowledge Exchange Project. It is intended to provide an opportunity for all concerned individuals and organisations to come together to hear the findings and messages from the workshops and consultations with children, young people and their advocates. It will contribute significantly to the final report of the Project.

The conference also will include: input from young people and the launch of a resource informed by the workshops with them; youth and media organisations providing examples of 'good practice' and citizen journalism. This conference will be of particular interest to young people, those that work with or for children and young people, media and decision-makers.

This event is organised by the QUB Childhood, Transition and Social Justice Initiative in partnership with Include Youth. The event is support by Youth Council for Northern Ireland.
