In recent years, growing public and political discourse about youth participation deficit and youth dissatisfaction have emerged across European societies. However, youth have for decades responded to their knowledge and concerns about climate change by demanding action from political actors. Despite the determination and their success in raising the profile of climate change as a pressing issue, little has been translated into action because of the youth’s lack of power to influence immediate policy change. The nature of this thesis is therefore built upon a techno- anthropological study on how youth participation in sustainable development can lead to empowerment. The study is built upon the multimethod approach of youth citizen social science and the theoretical understanding of critical theory of technology.
