What do you think?
I think in terms of representation in sport it depends what sport...men are under represented in synchronised swimming... and women in many other sports like football
We all define underrepresented people differently depending on our life experience as to who we have seen being underrepresented.
The problem when you start doing things like quotas to make sure that different voices are heard, like women, is that it can make some people view them differently i.e. that they are not there on merit/ hard work but just to fill a quota.
Overall I think quotas might be good but we need to get rid of the stigma attached to them.
Many people in Kenya don't get their voices heard. The children, the women and the men who are not rich.
We need to change how we value and listen to people. Everyone's views can be too important. Let's make time to hear them.
Establishing committees to speak/ represent people's opinions. For children, having a committee for the Children approved by the Government to represent the disadvantaged and neglected children. An example is a case in point in Kolkata there is a children's Council representing the street-connected children at parliament. At SALVE in Uganda we have a children's council representing the children supported by SALVE.
Members of parliament should go down to them, get their views and take them and table them in parliament.
Use of all the political channels from the local council up to the top to handle their views
Use of radios both talk shows and announcements to share different views would help
Community meetings with local leaders and the local people is my idea
We should use the organisations that promote the wellbeing of all citizens to lobby for them and make sure their views are heard. eg in the construction of schools, roads and equipping hospitals with drugs.
Communities need to vote MPS and political leaders who care about people and are not just "yes" people to those in higher power.
I think that people should be given more chances to mix with people different to themselves so that they can understand the lives and opinions of others. I think this would lead to better representation of underrepresented people.
