Youth Action and Proposals for Social Change

Published in November 2001

This Proposal Paper presents proposals of strategies for change as well as youth actions in different fields of development and human improvement.

The Youth Workshop is a network that brings together young people throughout the world who are conscious of the richness of their diversity, of culture, of their visions and of the importance of unity for facing up to the challenges that they must accomplish.

There is already an immense amount of action undertaken by young people for development and social change. In addition, the responsibility of youth in building today's and tomorrow's world is more essential than ever. Before making concrete and practical proposals, it seemed urgent to us to fundamentally put into question our ways of thinking so as to be able to conceive actions that are consistent with the reality of the challenges, in their interdependence and their complexity. These changes concern the very foundations of social relations, the role of money, the consequences of collective and social egoism on our own lives and on the lives of our family and society.
