Democracy & civic participation in Argentina



The project promotes civic participation and democracy in Argentina (democracy was re-established in 1983 after decades of dictatorships). The idea is to create a platform where young people can get involved in the life of the country from a non-political-party angle.The concept will give information and tools of civic participation, public actions, foster social commitment and make democracy stronger, accepting diverse opinions and voices to create a better future for all.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Argentina recovered democracy 30 years ago, and the citizens still dont understand how the system works. After years of political parties monopolizing the country agenda, people don't believe that the system will resolve their problems. Right now there are no spaces besides the political parties to participate in the serious problems of the country, and people become socially irresponsible and dont realize they are part of the solution and can create a better future.

How will this project solve this problem?

Engagement of the civil society in the country's issues is key to create a future and build more democracy,therefore we will offer a platform where people can get involved and engage with different topics. The project will be execute with many small actions going around the country's issues, involving specially youngsters from high schools and universities.

Potential Long Term Impact

The long term effects are difficult to project, everything can happen basically. We expect to create more social committed society and reach around 300 students yearly and 4000 people with our actions.
