Engage in our community competitions

We help young people develop the communication, research, analysis, debate and digital skills needed to participate in civic issues and then we provide them with the opportunity to actually use those skills to speak out, debate and take action on a range of civic issues. At the same time, we work with policymakers to actively include young people in policy making to ensure that young people not only have a safe place – in the local language on a community-developed platform — to voice their concerns and ideas but also to ensure that policymakers hear and respond to those voices.  We also involve teachers and parents so that we create an ecosystem which encourages and supports civic participation by youth.

 Special thank you to Fondation Botnar for deepening our public participation efforts.

The number of entries reflected just how strong the community spirit is in Bali. It was also a learning experience for me, to learn of the vast range of issues that are voiced through this engagement platform. Another aspect that was truly wonderful, was to see the bridging of a traditional art (Ogoh Ogoh) to a wider audience in a way where public issues can be represented through the Ogoh Ogoh.
