A new version of the Latin American meeting Concausa, which in November 2016 brought together young people from eleven countries of the continent in Santiago de Chile, is organizing the América Solidaria foundation, in conjunction with ECLAC and UNICEF.

It is an initiative aimed at young people between 15 and 17 years old from all Latin America, who are carrying out social innovation projects in their communities, appropriating the UN 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), a set of global objectives to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.

In its first version, young people from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay, shared workshops and activities aimed at enhancing and developing their skills, to finish by presenting their ideas in a Seminar at the headquarters of ECLAC.

This 2017 will repeat the experience, so they invite young people to send their proposals and be part of this initiative that seeks to discover those projects where young people are the protagonists of overcoming child poverty in their communities.
