Youth has the right to "access information and material.... especially those aimed at the promotion of his or her social, spiritual and moral well being and physical and mental health"
Participation:
Ongoing processes, which include information sharing and dialogue between children and adults based on mutual respect and in which children can learn how their views and those of adults are taken into account and shape the outcome of such process.
Children should be supported and encouraged to form their own child-led organizations and initiatives, which will create space for meaningful participation and representation. In addition, children can contribute their perspectives, for example, on the design of schools...... and local transport systems in order to ensure more appropriate services
Intervention at the community level should include the provision of information, services and commodities as well as prevention of illness and injury through, e.g., investment in safe public spaces, road safety and education on injury, accident and violence prevention.
