Scotland’s national youth information and citizenship charity, Young Scot, has launched their evolved co-design service –#YSHive.
The service empowers young people to be system changers and influencers by sharing power with organisations and tackling society’s toughest challenges.
Co-designed by young people, #YSHive supports organisations to partner with young people to define, design, and deliver new policies and improvements to services.
In the past, Young Scot’s co-design projects have been behind some of the biggest policy changes surrounding young people including the Scottish Government Mental Health Strategy, The National Transport Strategy, and BBC Scotland’s future output across TV, radio, and online.
As part of the launch, Young Scot is highlighting some of their young volunteers who have made big changes in their communities with their bold and innovative ideas – all tackling today’s issues.
You can find out more by joining Young Scot for ‘System Changers Unleashed: Collaborating with young people to future-proof policy and service design in Scotland.’
This online event is taking place on Wednesday 2 September 2020 and will offer insight into the new service design approach. It also offers the chance to collaborate with young people during short interactive facilitated workshops.
Tickets are available here.
