Power and democracy

Power and influence over your environment are important democratic rights for all people. The concept of having your say and being heard are issues that are fought over frequently. People who are vulnerable or disadvantaged in our society are less likely to have a voice, due to the barriers created by our inequitable environmental, political and social structures. Young people are often overlooked or excluded due to false assumptions that they do not have the ideas and maturity to contribute to important debates.
