|"Article2"-Youth for a change |
I am an active participant on the Voices of Youth UNICEF forum, a website dedicated to connect youth all over the world to make their voices heard and take action in order to solve global social issues.
During the last year, young people coming from different countries and cultures had gathered together on the forum, had discussed about world’s problems and new ways of getting involved and finally had created a new youth group, named “Article2” .The group’s goal is to build a better future for our planet, by using young people’s ideas, talents and personal skills in order to make a difference in the world they live.
As a member of “Article 2” group I am proud to announce you the launching of our next project: an online newsletter which aim is to help youth make their voices heard and raise awareness upon important problems that affect worldwide teenagers, like children’s rights, poverty, education, war, HIV/AIDS, violence, social exclusion, etc.
Our newsletter “Article2-Youth for a change” will try to reach people's minds and hearts through articles, reports, interviews, documentaries as well as photos and artworks (poems, songs, sketches). It will also include contests and surveys, and the reader’s direct participation will be demanded as our publication will be opened to any person eager to get involved and help us improve the world around us.
Our desire is to have this newsletter published, advertised or reviewed on as many sites as possible, in order to affirm our ideas and make our initiatives known by a numerous public. We are also looking for new members,people eager to help us with ideas and advice.
We hope that you will consider our demand and support us in our tentative to gain youth’s participation all over the world and determine them fight against social injustice in both developed and third world countries.
