The ambition to involve younger people in future planning processes in order to get full participation of all groups in the society requires a deep and well-planned dialogue. Although, participation not always means inclusion. The purpose of this study was to analyze how the younger generation in the society is included in the future work. This is based on a case study of the developmental work in the municipality of Skellefteå.
Questions that were answered were how the municipality has made the participation possible? To what extent has the younger generation been involved? How did this group experience their participation? The methodology consisted of mixed methods that include observations, surveys to the session leaders and to the participants in the dialogue and three interviews with two participants and one municipal civil servant.
The result showed that the open information didn´t reach the younger generation to the open dialogues although the dialogue design gave good conditions for participation. Also the younger had highrepresentativeness of the dialogue thanks to outreach meetings, but that a greater ambition to get them to the open meetings may lead to greater inclusion in the future work of the municipality.
