Jovens na Política (1st Edition)

The project “Jovens na Política – Participar para a Cidadania Global” (Youth in Politics – Participating for Global Citizenship) promoted Global Citizenship among young political parties, so that issues related to Development Education are integrated in their activity programs.

Through the “Bora Lá, Sai do Sofá” (Let’s Go, Get off the Sofa) campaign, which included the participation of Portuguese youtubers, singers, comedians and actors, the youth vote was promoted in the 2017 Municipal Elections.
