Research on the tokenization of young people in civic spaces

The Canadian Coalition for Youth, Peace & Security (CCYPS) is a network of individuals and organizations working on Youth, Peace and Security locally, nationally and globally. In July 2021, we launched a web-based survey on the tokenization young people experience in civic spaces, supported by the #RisingYouth grant administered by TakingITGlobal. In November 2021, we launched two additional web-based surveys to delve deeper into the questions surrounding problems and solutions for the tokenization of young people, supported by a UN Women grant.

Based on the findings of our research, the CCYPS is creating a toolkit that will demonstrate the experience of young people in decision-making and civic spaces, while also identifying recommendations to avoid further tokenization, ensuring meaningful youth engagement in Canada and globally. The CCYPS thanks all participants who generously shared their experiences with us, as well as TakingITGlobal and UN Women who made this possible.​
