10 Days of Activism at a glance


More than one week has passed since the 10 Days of Activism Campaign mobilized young people around the world, under the theme “Nothing for Us Without Us”. They joined efforts and raised their voice regarding their needs and rights that are critical to a rights-based, youth centered agenda at the national and global level.

From 1st to 10th September, young people were active on the field and they sent daily updates that were all gathered on the website
http://10daysofactivism.com/ and widely promoted on social media platforms.
Even after 10th of September, they were very active in sending short
updates, photos and videos. In the upcoming weeks, they will be working on final reports.
