I ‘grew up’ in the Dutch youth participation field. Capacity building, especially of youth and youth professionals, remains to be very dear to me. It is my direct connection to reality and youngsters themselves. I enjoy hearing the opinions of children and young people and to grant them with a platform for their voice. Additionally, it more than once fuelled a research project.
