Children and Community Regeneration: Creating better neighbourhoods

Imagine a country where children are consulted, listened to and taken seriously; where opportunities prevail for children to be involved in decision-making and the democratic process; where children, as a matter of course, are able to make positive contributions to the well-being of their communities and neighbourhoods; where children’s participation stemming from political and social imperatives is regarded as just and normal; and where children need no convincing that democracy works for them. This book is written with this ideal in mind. It is based on an assumption that children, as full members of a society, have the human right to participate in its activities, according to their levels of ability, understanding, and maturity. A central premise is that children are not just the citizens of tomorrow; they are also the citizens of today.
