5th World Youth Congress on Youth and Development – Istanbul, Turkïye –
The following Handbook has put together action projects that attack different problems that young people face in their communities all around Latin America.
The purpose of this document is to gather specific projects that the youth community that attended the 5th youth congress in Istanbul is already working in each of their countries, or heard about its existence and effectiveness.
It’s in our hope that this Handbook would become a platform for networking and sharing problems and solution in similar areas of interest and conflict. And become a network that may strength Latin America as a region working on projects tackling the achievement of the MDG’s.
We would also hope that this Handbook can become a mean to inspire young people worldwide that could replicate and adapt some of these successful projects and implement them in their countries.
