About this Event
A global conversation with young activists from Bolivia, Senegal, Togo, and the United States about intergenerational collaboration and how adults can most effectively support youth activism. Bridging diverse contexts and struggles, including climate justice, working children’s rights, and young people’s participation in the design and implementation of public policy, this webinar will explore different approaches to allyship and the challenges and potential for adults and young people to work together in pursuit of a more just and sustainable world.
Featuring activists from:
Youth vs. Apocalypse is a Bay-Area based diverse network of young climate justice activists working together to lift the voices of youth, in particular youth of color, and fight for a livable climate and an equitable, sustainable, and just world.
Act2gether Bolivia aims to create a social movement promoting partnership between children and adults across sectors in order to create a fair and sustainable world. They work and support Municipal Committees of children and young people, creating spaces for political advocacy for the respect of their rights.
The African Movement of Working Children and Youth is a child-led organization that trains victims to become actors for their own protection, influencing their communities for children to be born and grow in good conditions, to enjoy their full rights to thrive, while helping their communities to develop harmoniously in peace and in a favorable environment.
