This course seeks to nurture a sense of agency and responsibility among young people, helping them realize their potential as engaged citizens and leaders of tomorrow.

Each day of the course focuses on specific themes and skills related to youth empowerment and active citizenship. Here is a breakdown of the daily sessions:

Future Developments and Risks: The future of youth empowerment and active citizenship relies on the commitment of governments to prioritize youth participation, provide opportunities for meaningful engagement, and create inclusive policies that address the needs and aspirations of young people. Failure to invest in youth empowerment may result in disengagement, apathy, and a lost opportunity to harness the energy and creativity of young individuals in driving social change.

By empowering young people with the skills, knowledge, and platforms for active citizenship, we can foster a generation of socially conscious and responsible individuals who actively contribute to creating a more inclusive, just, and sustainable future. However, without supportive government policies and frameworks, the risks include marginalized youth voices, limited opportunities for participation, and a lack of resources for youth-led initiatives, ultimately hindering the positive impact young people can make in society.

Through the Empowering Youth for Social Change course, we aim to inspire and equip young individuals to become effective agents of change, engage with their communities, and advocate for a more equitable and sustainable world.
