Our digital co-research toolkit allows us, and our partners, to generate evidence on phenomena shaping the resilience of young people and their communities to impact policy and practice. These bespoke data-gathering tools are youth-centred and offer creative new ways to undertake co-research and consultation with young people and their communities.
We believe in empowering our partners, communities and young people to generate, analyse and mobilise meaningful data to create change. If you are interested in utilising any of our tools, please contact us.
Digital Capacities Profile Tool
This tool enables us to capture users’ ‘digital capacities’ – their abilities to mobilise material and symbolic resources in order to maximise benefits, opportunities and aspirations afforded by the digital. The profile enables points of comparability between different communities across local, national and regional scales and is underpinned by a user-centred, participatory process of generating bespoke indicators that can best capture a particular community’s digital needs.
Online Community Consultation Platform
RErights.org (opens in a new window) is a youth-centred online consultation platform which invites young people to share their experiences, perceptions and insights on a topic by completing a series of activities. This tool can be used by youth-serving organisations to creatively engage young people around issues relevant to them. The platform supports more than 20 different languages.
Digital Emotion Mapping Platform
Our Invisible City app enables users to map their emotional responses to time and place, generating data about young people’s and others lived experience of wellbeing. This tool crowd-sources community insights to map the emotional geography of specific sites, towns/cities and/or regions across time, and can be easily adapted and repurposed for a diverse range of contexts.
Engaged Policy Toolkit
The Engaged Policy toolkit aims to boost engagement with young people in policy processes. It includes a process design and profile tool for exploring, assessing and co-designing strategies to address critical issues that prevent participation opportunities. It supports communities, organisations and governments to collaboratively assess and design responses to policy and practice challenges, and can be adapted for specific policy challenges and particular jurisdictions.
