WHAT IS CONCAUSA?
Concausa 2030 is an initiative organized by America Solidaria, ECLAC, and UNICEF, with the collaboration of Caserta Foundation and the sponsorship of Preuniversitario Pedro de Valdivia. It aims to know and spread social innovation proposals that young people of America have been doing in their communities, appropriating the 2030 agenda of the United Nations and its 17 SDG, a group of goals to eradicate poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.
The selected projects will participate in an international meeting in Santiago, Chile during November 2019. There, they will do workshops and activities designed to enhance and develop their abilities. The meeting will end with the presentation of their projects in an idea encounter at the ECLAC Room Raúl Prebish, in front of the other teams and people from America Solidaria, United Nations, ECLAC, and UNICEF.
CONCAUSA aims to empower, connect and mobilize adolescents from the continent around a network that contributes to sustainable development and overcoming child poverty. The “CONCAUSA Generation” inherits the challenge of putting the 2030 Agenda into practice through a social model that focuses on inclusive and equitable development with youth leadership to generate sustainable social change.

3. Empower adolescents so that they may to disseminate and spread models of sustainable social change in their communities.
4. Create a network of youth agents of transformation, who are aware of their rights and promote them in their communities.
