Together with young students from Valongo (Porto), PELE is facilitating different activities within the project’s framework of “Urgente Youth“ (“Jovens Urgentes”). The project aims to create time and spaces for young people to reflect, express their urges collectively and interact about participation, democracy, human rights and many others.
The work started in the High School of Ermesinde, together with 60 students and the teaching staff, who are participating in workshops which use artistic experiments to encourage reflections and actions on individual and collective causes.
In addition to the regular workshops, the project also promotes synergies between groups such as the Student Climate Strike Movement as well as Extinction Rebellion, who shared their experiences about activism, the fight for climate justice and different forms of civic participation.
During the next months new actions will follow to provoke movements and exchanges between all the participants.
