Unpacking Empowerment: Young People & Sexual choices

March 28, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Unpacking Empowerment

Are your curious about…
… how young people around the world view empowerment?
… how this relates to their sexual choices?
… how organisations can work together to make more impact?

Then don’t miss out on Unpacking Empowerment: Young People & Sexual choices
On March 28, Dance4Life will be hosting a unique event in a former school building. An engaging afternoon with young people and experts from the fields of policy making, research, innovation and funding. We are organising a number of interactive “classes” about young people, empowerment and their sexual choices.

March 28: Back to School
Our afternoon back at school will be hosted by Ama van Dantzig and youngsters from around the world. They will share their personal stories and experiences, together with our ambassadors Marije Zuurveld. Director Jael van der Heijden will introduce our latest research from Avance Impact on 2.500 young people from Indonesia, Kenya, Russia and the Netherlands, as well as the impact from our Journey4Life pilot. After this, Dance4Life will invite you to participate in an interactive training session on engaging young people. We will be closing with an interactive panel featuring Mette Gonggrijp from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Judith Westeneng from Rutgers, Comic Relief (tbc), and youngsters about the future of sexuality education.
