The Rejuvenate ‘Living Archive’ forms the basis of what we hope will become a resource hub for those working at the intersection between child/youth-led work and social change work.

In compiling the archive, we drew from existing practitioner and academic literature, field experts and exemplary projects. The archive includes information and links to projects, organisations and literature from children’s and youth geographies, the sociology and anthropology of childhood and youth, education, and international development. All of these elements come together in what we are calling a ‘Living Archive’, an evolving and growing database of projects, resources, organisations and people.
