Children shaping their world: an international network of child participatory research projects
Presenter: Lisa Gibbs (University of Melbourne, Australia)
Introduction: Involving children as co-researchers in participatory health research projects has been associated with a range of benefits likely to promote wellbeing and resilience including self esteem, self efficacy, self control, sensitivity to the perspective of others, hope for the future, democratic decision making, and active citizenship (Malone & Hartung 2010).
Methods: The Kids in Action network was launched in September 2016 by the International Collaboration for Participatory Health Research and coordinated from the University of Melbourne, Australia to support projects, to increase the profile of participatory research with children, to provide a platform for shared learning and development of these methods, to consider how best to measure impacts, and to co-generate resources to share with others to support the use of participatory health research with children.
Findings: There are already approximately 30 projects and supporting members registered across 5 continents and potential for the Kids in Action network to act as a platform for child input into global issues impacting on health, wellbeing and resilience.
