Young People building a new South Africa

Euro-African Exchange on Youth Participation in the 21st century/Nelspruit, South Africa/18-26 November 2000

In this one-week exchange project which was co-organised and hosted by the Mpumalanga Youth Commission youth workers of European and African youth exchange organisations met to discuss and exchange examples of good practice in relation to various forms of youth work which aim to promote young people’s active participation in society. In particular, group discussions and visits to distinct South African youth groups focused on fostering a better understanding of the problems and challenges faced by local Youth in the post -Apartheid society.
