International Training for Better Youth Activism


Active youth – step ahead to joint changes

Young people must have the opportunity to lead changes within their own communities. They have to understand and defend their rights and take lead roles in a community life that will allow them and us to shape our environment according to our needs and imagination. Youth activism is the main concept for advocating for the change we want to see. It is very important that young creativity, inspiration and active participation in all aspects of life tailor community and the world according to desired standards and needs.

If we want to empower changes in our communities and shape our environment for the better, we need to stimulate on spot youth activism. We need to create innovative methods that will bring back youth energy and creativity in our everyday life.
