The project has devel­oped through dif­fer­ent types of co-pro­duc­tion. In this sec­tion we will give an overview.

Besides work­ing with arti­cle and reports the project con­sists of dif­fer­ent activ­i­ties, some with stu­dents and some with mar­gin­al­ized youth.

Learning from the margin

The main tar­get par­tic­i­pants are youth at-risk groups from each coun­try. Oth­er tar­get par­tic­i­pants include actions researchers and pro­fes­sion­als from the part­ner­ship coun­tries. The work­shop can be described as an analy­sis work­shop. Besides the ana­lyt­i­cal activ­i­ty that the work­shop pro­vides, there has also been field­trips to at-risk hous­ing areas and urban set­tings in the three countries.

The goal of this activ­i­ty is that at-risk youth meet and share expe­ri­ences and learn about con­di­tions in oth­er coun­tries. This activ­i­ty will result in an impor­tant analy­sis of the voiced and shared expe­ri­ences of the at-risk youth from the three dif­fer­ent coun­tries and the three dif­fer­ent urban realities.

The analy­sis will form part of the data col­lec­tion and analy­sis used to devel­op the PSP mod­el. Addi­tion­al­ly, the par­tic­i­pat­ing youth will also take with them many new expe­ri­ences and insights.



Urban awareness and international reflection

With­in the project activ­i­ties there has also been stu­dent exchange. Stu­dents have trav­elled with­in each coun­try see­ing uni­ver­si­ties and urban areas. The stu­dent has dur­ing they stay been giv­en lec­tures, try­ing out meth­ods on the web app and tak­ing trips round.

Urban Action

The activ­i­ty is based on mar­gin­al­ized young people’s joint analy­sis of being mar­gin­al­ized, and it will thus illus­trate both sim­i­lar­i­ties and dif­fer­ences across the nation­al con­texts. This out­put will con­tribute a sub­stan­tial analy­sis of how bar­ri­ers and oppor­tu­ni­ties are dis­trib­uted in the lives of mar­gin­al­ized young people.

The joint ana­lyt­ic work is based on work in each nation­al con­text. In each coun­try, the researchers and the part­ner orga­ni­za­tions will hold and pre­pare local work­shops with the youth at risk, who will elab­o­rate on their local con­di­tions and social real­i­ty. These local analy­ses will form the basis for the transna­tion­al work­shops with mar­gin­al­ized youth from the three par­tic­i­pant coun­tries and it is with­in this transna­tion­al work­shop the joint ana­lyt­ic work will be developed.

It is rare that high­ly mar­gin­al­ized youth are brought togeth­er across nations to share their own analy­ses of their life con­di­tions and oppor­tu­ni­ties and to offer their sug­ges­tions for appro­pri­ate change. This out­put is there­fore extreme­ly inno­v­a­tive and holds strong poten­tial for direct impact and transferability.

The meth­ods used in each con­try are fur­ther described under the head­line Par­tic­i­pa­to­ry Social Planning
