Registration for the event “GO YOUTH — Young people active in development”, an initiative promoted by AIDGLOBAL, with the support of the Centro de Investigação em Educação da Universidade da Madeira (CIE-UMa), which will take place on November 19, between 3: 00 pm and 5: 00 pm, in the Senate Room, at the UMa Penteada Campus.

The meeting aims to raise awareness of young volunteers in Youths Party and other youth associations and young people interested in politics so that their participation in social activism is more active, in accessing and monitoring current policies and decisions, reflecting on Human Rights, with a focus on the Sustainable Development Goals.

It is imperative to increasingly recognize the role of young people as key actors in building democracy and strengthening participation in order to minimize existing challenges and work towards an inclusive, participatory and innovative society.

This session concludes a cycle of five “Go Youth” Workshops, held in different regions of the country, where Non-Formal Education dynamics have already been applied to about 100 young people, mobilizing them for a more conscious and informed political participation in contemporary issues, including Gender Equality, Climate Change and Migration.

To participate in this Workshop, register here, until November 16, 2022.
