‘Youth Unite’ intends to create spaces for meaningful dialogues for young people, where they get the opportunity to build their own narrative, that is informed by a thorough understanding and analysis of core concepts like power, privilege, inclusion, identities, justice, respect and equality.
The aim of ‘Youth Unite’ is to: ‘Build a movement where young women, men, girls and boys as well as the institutions they belong to, believe in and practice ‘Equality, Respect for diverse identities, Inclusion of everyone, Justice and freedom for all, and Agency to make a change’.
This project will help in enabling young women, men, boys and girls to recognise their own actions and beliefs as unjust and unacceptable by understanding how underlying biases and beliefs justify and normalise such violence and injustice. Individuals and groups then make positive choices of rejecting such actions deriving from their own practical analysis and awareness.
The focus will be on partnering with institutions and acting as a catalyst for seeding a movement of young people to address violence and intolerance.
