We, @groundationgda, @PennaPieri, and @ConTrekk will be hosting the Grenada Leg The Guardian’s #YouthEngage Worldwide Twitter Chat on Friday 24 October from 4:00-5:00pm (Eastern Caribbean Time). As a diverse group of Grenadian activists we will be facilitating a Caribbean-wide discussion focused around one main question: “How do we better engage young people socially, economically and politically?”
#YouthEngage is a Guardian Global Development Professionals and Guardian Public Leaders initiative is a 24 hour conversation, 1 hour per region, which invites YOUth from across the world to discuss what matters most. Join us in this conversation on topics including: education, employment, governance and leadership. Tell us your ideas on immigration, is it really better elsewhere? Do you feel that you can get your voiced heard and become leaders? What support do you need from family, community, government? What is important to you? Tell us & tell the world!
Let us know you are joining by tweeting, “I’m joining @GuardianGDP’s #youthengage tweetathon in the Caribbean on 24 Oct 4-5pm”
