Participate and Change

The project “Participate and Change” was implemented between 2014 and 2015, it aimed at enhancing communication channels between youth activists in universities and Parliament members through a series of debate sessions entitled “Lebanon of Tomorrow” that raised key national issues that are directly related to the youth aspirations for a better future for Lebanon. More than 250 youths participated in 12 debate sessions that were held and tackled issues like Unemployment and free good quality education, Sustainable Transport and the importance of having a residential strategy, Personal Status Civil Law, Social and Health Security, Reform of the Internal parliament bylaws to enforce transparency and accountability, environment, and Decentralization. The debate sessions aimed at creating a positive interaction between leaders from Lebanese universities and parliament candidates and translating the youth concerns to future decision makers to create a brighter future for Lebanon.
