Youth ACT Project- Cloud Meeting Jun 2020

On June 6, 2020, the First Youth-ACT Project Cloud Meeting was successfully held, with the participation of one hundred young leaders and coordinators, from 20 youth groups, from 27 cities in 20 countries: Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Uruguay, USA, Portugal, Belgium, France, Italy, and Spain.

The event began with a short speech from Julia María González Ferreras, President of EDIW. Then each of the groups shared their experiences of citizen participation in the contexts where they are found, experiences that have been nuanced by that one of the Covid-19. Participations were around two questions: 1) What attitudes help to get ahead in difficult times, such as this pandemic? 2) What have we done as collectives during these months? The meeting ended with the intervention of Emma Melgarejo, Head of Higher and Non-formal Education. In the end, the young people said goodbye with the desire to meet again in a very next opportunity, with more experiences and learning to, con más experiencias y aprendizajes para compartir.
