Challenge

Violence in the state of Oaxaca is increasing, the deforestation is spreading in an alarming way and it has the second highest levels of social conflicts in youth in Oaxaca make up 30% of the electorate, but young people can't count on having access to social participation and decision making in their community. They often do not have experience or skills in values such as community cohesion, gender and diversity rights, non-violence, environmental protection, justice and fair relationships.

Solution

With this project, 50 young rural people of Oaxaca in Mexico who are determined to make a positive change in their community, will be part of the School for the Common Good. They will receive training in leadership, working as collectives for their collective and human rights, the protection of nature and territory, the production of healthy foods, the organization and solution of conflicts and how to create fair relationships that permit them to create and carry out projects.

Long-Term Impact

Oaxaca's youth want to live with values for the Common Good and initiate collective actions with people of their community, provide sustainable community projects and gender equality; they develop critical reasoning skills and create social change by implementing equitable relationships, reduce violence and live life in harmony with their environment.
