Claire Quintin, Secretary General of MIJARC, represented rural youth to the 8th UNESCO Youth Forum in Paris, from 29th-31st October 2013.
MIJARC has presented there a project for skill training of Rural Youth leaders, that was shortlisted in 45 projects out of 1500.
This forum was also an occasion to make rural youth heard in the topics of education, youth participation, social inclusion and civic engagment.
It was a pleaser to meet there with Arlindo from the Young Christian Workers, our sister organization.
This summer 2013, MIJARC delegates from different continents met in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
After participating to the World Youth Day for some of them, the participants gathered to share about solidarity economy as a way to develop rural areas.
The world Team thanks the brazilian people for their warm welcome, and wish that the participants will build fruitful projects in their continents for a fairer world!
