This paper proposes empowerment as a measuring unit for participatory design. To substantiate this position, a literature research on empowerment of young adults was conducted, resulting in the identification of age-specific development goals and indicators for empowerment, both of which can be used to measure empowerment of young adults and thereby evaluate their participation.
