Implementating the knowlegde we have
In the view of C4Youth, the current issues in youth care are so complex that a one-dimensional approach is not sufficient to really achieve results and impact for the target audience. We opt for an approach that is suitable for this, namely that of participatory action research. In short, we determine who the 'stakeholders' are in specific issues, we analyse the issues together, we map out existing knowledge and determine how we can use and apply it. We formulate objectives and determine in co-creation which elements and factors are relevant for achieving them. In our view, there is almost always enough knowledge, but the problem usually lies in the implementation of it.
