Global Advocacy Projects on the Implementation of E2030 Midterm Project Lesson Brief
The Arab Campaign for Education for All (ACEA)
Title of project: Engaging youth in education for social transformation.
In the Arab countries where ACEA operates, CSOs encounter serious institutional and structural obstacles to youth participation and involvement in decision-making and policy making processes.
The effects include, but are not limited to:
- Lack of clear governmental policy and regulatory frameworks concerned with increasing youth engagement and influence in public education policies,
- Limited capacities of youth CSOs in terms of youth mobilisation, unification and engagement, and
- Limited awareness of youth in terms of their role as agents of change, conjugated with their limited knowledge and capacities in SDG-4, civil society principles, human rights, advocacy, tactics and mechanisms.
