SSYS Youth Promoters for Social Cohesion: Final Workshop in East Timor in June 2022

With the final workshop in Dili (East Timor) the Youth Trainers and Youth Promoters successfully finished an intensive time of training. Youth Trainers are practitioners with experience in youth work, non-formal education, facilitation of group work and dialogue. Youth Promoters are young people involved in organizations, associations and social movements and youth leaders of local, regional or online communities, motivated to make an impact in their societies. The workshops were facilitated by a DARE team, a team from the GIZ office East Timor and the Youth Trainers.

We congratulate all participants and wish all project teams from the regions further success. After these activities, the network consisting of active Youth from different regions of the country will take over and find ways how to organise and support each other also in the future. Our DARE team looks back on intensive months, inspiring encounters, ethusiastic young people and a vivid final workshop with a lot of positive energy.

Looking forward to maintain collaboration between European organisations and facilitators in the fields of active citizenship and Human Rights education with the colleagues in East Timor. Human Rights, engagement for gender equality and a sustainable future, passion for non-formal and democracy-related learning and empowerment of youth for civil engagement are our shared vision.

The project SSYS Youth Promoters for Social Cohesion is a partnership between DARE Democracy and Human Rights Education in Europe, DARE member Rede Inducar, the East Timor office of GIZ and the State Secretariate for Youth and Sports Timor Leste.
