Session Description
In the current "post-truth" world, facts appear to matter less and less and the decisions concerning key populations, such as young and vulnerable people, are made without consulting the affected parties. As such, there is a disjunction between the policies implemented and the reality on the ground. In order to change this, we need to break down existing silos and have those in political positions working alongside those affected by the decisions they make. The purpose of this workshop is to help Youth advocates/activists better target their message to the communities affected and the relevant policymakers, in a contextually-relevant manner, taking into account cultural differences and adopting a common language familiar to those in the community, addressing their identities and values.
