Youth Action Lab 2020 (Fully Funded )

Youth Action Lab

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.

    Young people face increasing barriers and threats to their activism. Youth-led movements cannot access sustainable resources, lack the technical capacity and networks to engage with political systems, and continue to work in silos, separated from other movements and activists through geographies, movements, and causes.

    Many times, these barriers and existing hierarchies in civil society often position young people as foot soldiers and not as agents of change. Through extensive research and consultation with stakeholders, CIVICUS has come to understand that the design of an alternative resource mechanism that focuses on the meaningful participation of young people is essential to achieve a sustainable, resilient, and inclusive civil society. Its solution to the above-mentioned problems is to launch a Youth Action Lab, an experimentation laboratory for ten young activists based in the Global South (Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and the Pacific) that would support them to be more sustainable and resilient in their activism.

    Apply now to be part of this incredible initiative! Strategy development: the laboratory will provide opportunities for capacity development through peer-to-peer learning, training, and skills development workshops with the objective of supporting youth activists to be more strategic and specific in their campaign.
    Building alliances: The Laboratory, through a residence in-person and regular peer learning sessions, will create spaces for movements and youth groups to connect, share experiences and heal together, to build stronger alliances and more connected movements
