Around 50 young people from the Americas and Europe met in Lima, Peru, in mid-August to mark the culmination of three years of work and activities focusing on participation and democracy.

This was the third meeting of the project called Youth Act: Young people for participation and democratic values that was launched by EDIW (Education for an Interdependent World). The project is co-funded by the European Union.

The extensive Youth Act programme involves more than 240 young people. Their activities over the past three years, notwithstanding the pandemic, took place in 19 cities in 12 countries in North and South America and Europe.

Lima hosted the final seminar in the series which took place after face-to-face meetings in Madrid and New York. Information about this meeting has featured on this website.


The seminar in Lima was attended by 47 young people. They represented the various groups who followed a programme for each semester and had three online meetings. In these they shared their work and learned from the activities and circumstances of the other groups. They find that they all have similar dreams and are trying to achieve them in many parts of the world.

During their stay from 8 to 18 August, they were introduced to Peru and its history. They visited Villa Salvador, the PUCP University and other educational centres and social projects, and they shared with each other facts about their own countries.
