November 2, 2011 - What about yourself? How do you build peace in your country?
Armando Paz is launching the call for participation in the second round of the National Forums that will be taking place in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama during the last week of November and the first week of December. The National Forums serve as a space where young people can meet and exchange experiences about initiatives that they are pursuing or wish to develop in the fields of education, culture, welfare (recreation, leisure areas, sports and health) and labor, to prevent violence in their communities. In addition to this, throughout the duration of the forums, young people will be able to engage in dialogue and reflect together with government representatives, businessmen and youth leaders of NGO’s, upon the formulation of recommendations that contribute to carrying out successful proposals aimed to prevent violence in their communities.
Young people who want to participate in National Forums must register before November 14th. To learn more about this call please click on the link below: http://www.armandopaz.com/noticias
