A socially just approach to justice: What does social justice look and feel like for 18-25 year olds in conflict with the law in Scotland?
Colleagues from the Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice (CYCJ), the University of Dundee, University of Strathclyde and the Glasgow School of Art have been working with young adults aged 18-25 and justice professionals across Scotland on a project funded by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute. Using creative and design-led approaches they have held a number of online workshops designed to facilitate engagement, participation and to help them find the answer to questions such as:
- What does social justice mean to young adults?
- What challenges do young adults in conflict with the law face?
- What are the key ingredients for a socially just community?
- How can we work together to make change happen?
The organisers plan to share their findings and launch their exhibition at an online event on Thursday June 3, 10am-12pm. There will be the opportunity to hear from young adults and engage in discussion and dialogue with policymakers, practitioners and academics across Scotland and beyond.
