WHAT IS CONCAUSA?
CONCAUSA is an initiative that aims to empower, connect and mobilize adolescents in Latin America and the Caribbean around a network that contributes to sustainable development. Generation CONCAUSA faces the challenge of implementing the 2030 Agenda through a social model that focuses on youth-led inclusive and equitable development, as a generation bringing about sustainable social change.
Due to COVID-19, this year, the selected teams will participate of a regional 4-day gathering, through an innovative online format, that will combine digital and analogue challenges to strengthen and promote skills to apply to their community projects. The summit culminates in the presentation of their projects in an Ideas Exchange in front of their peers and representatives of America Solidaria and the United Nations, including ECLAC and UNICEF.
