SDSN Youth Mexico is localizing the Youth Solutions Report by featuring game-changing youth solutions in Mexico. This past quarter the network completed the planning phase and is preparing to open calls for applications.
SDSN Youth Mexico partnered with Makesense México to elect youth who could be beneficiaries of the 100% scholarship by the Odisea XXI project. Moreover, the network partnered with Disruptivo TV who is the network’s main partner in the development of the Mexico Youth Solutions Report.
The network hosted an event under the theme “Objetivos del Buen Vivir” which translates to “Goals for good living”. SDSN Youth Mexico plans to launch the 2nd edition of the Hora 2030 program, with a different topic for discussion. The plan in this 2nd edition is to attract more participants with new topics.
The network is developing a platform that will feature a database with information on hundreds of youth-led organizations in Mexico where they are located and their primary activities.
We organized a workshop betweenMexican youth and the Senate. In 4 days, participants received training on legislation with a sustainability perspective. They then worked on the analysis of specific legislative projects and topics, and made proposals to the Senators on ways to strengthen such legislations and to include youth perspectives.We had representations from 23 out of 32 states, 35 participants and 2 members of indigenous communities. 15 Senators also participated in the workshop, which makes up 10% of the Chamber.
