Hi there! Before we go any further, we’d like to introduce ourselves. We’re a non-profit organization that acts to promote and defend the rights of adolescents and youth. Through communication, education and advocacy, we organize teens, youth and educators to promote a just, participative and plural society. How do we do that? Through educommunication and peer education.
Educommunication is our way to communicate and educate at the same time, establishing a real dialog and effective participation. Conceptually, educommunication is a set of actions that aims to amplify self expression in educational spaces, as well as to develop critical spirit in users. And all this happens in a very democratic way.
It’s important to emphasize that all the work we do is based on the understanding that adolescentes are subjects of rights. Therefore, they need to be considered in their unique condition of development, with specific vulnerabilities and potentialities, acknowledging their cultural, social and racial diversity.
