Communicate your results

Communicate the results in an easily accessible, transparent and appealing way

The output of your participation phase can take many forms. No matter the form it is very important that the results are presented in a transparent way which also appeals to the recipients. As there are several recipients of the results, targeted efforts are also highly relevant here. You can ask the different groups of recipients how they would prefer to receive the results. The decision-makers might want it one way, the media a second, and young people a third.

Besides presenting the actual results in the form of ideas, recommendations or other, it is also important that you clarify the significance and relevance of your project results. You should make it clear to everyone that there is real quality output to be gained from involving young people in decision-making processes. To put it another way, you should use your results to show how well youth participation works.
