Research shows that the drivers of resilience are complex and thus require holistic, socio-ecological responses. Underpinned by interdisciplinary approaches and youth-centred, participatory methods, the Young and Resilient Research Centre (incorporating the Intergener8 Living Lab) generates evidence-based policy and practice outcomes that leverage the digital to strengthen the resilience of young people and their communities.

Given the urgent issues facing young people in the digital age, and the growing demand from the international community, the UN Committee for the Rights of the Child voted to develop the General Comment on Children in Relation to the Digital Environment, to support interpretation of the Convention in a digital age.
The project deployed a qualitative, participatory research methodology developed by the Y&R Research Centre and presents the findings of creative workshops conducted with: 96 children aged 10-18; 58 parents and carers; and 50 representatives of government departments, local & international NGOs, schools, police, telecommunications companies, religious organisations & community leaders.
This report describes the Living Lab process used in the City of Valenzuela, summarises the key findings of the workshops with children, presents the critical issues and a preliminary list of indicators and reflects on the strengths and limitations of the Living Lab process in promoting better, more inclusive violence prevention and response.
