The Youth Action Lab is a one-year co-creation laboratory for grassroots youth activists based in the global south that works to support their movements to be more resilient and sustainable in their quest for a more equitable world. The laboratory is an innovative, safe, active, inclusive, collective, representative and connected, online and physical space for grassroots activists, which carefully considers various contexts and ecosystems to obtain better resources to prosper with their communities.
Participants in the Laboratory work to build networks and political solidarity, strengthen capacities to commit to policy processes and access resources to support their movement. The laboratory will act as a center to test new ways of working within civil society and mobilize the learning of all sectors in support of youth-led movements.
The Youth Action Lab is a pilot project supported by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad). This initiative is part of the CIVICUS Youth and Civil Society Resources workflows to build a more resilient, effective, safe and diverse civil society in the 21st century.
