WYAMENA Holds its first Webinar on Youth Engagement & Activism

February 13, 2021, MENA – World Youth Alliance Middle East & North Africa (WYAMENA) holds its online February webinar, a first of a series of many to come.

Since the pandemic, the Middle East & North Africa office has been mobilizing its efforts to make its programs and events accessible to everyone in MENA, which led to the creation of the webinar series that will include different experts who will share their experience and offer practical experience to all WYAMENA member.

The first guest was Wiem Chamsi from Tunisia. Wiem is a long time youth activist & consultant from Tunisia. She is a social innovator, trainer, and junior civil society consultant. She is the founder of Youth For Change, a local youth-led movement working towards sustainable development, social entrepreneurship, and youth leadership. She is consistently advocating for sustainable change, fighting corruption within the humanitarian sector, climate change, and meaningful youth participation in decision-making.

More than a mere online call, the event served as a reminder of the importance of effectively understanding human dignity for all of MENA, the power youth hold in changing their communities, and offered practical advice for youth interested in activism to better move forward with their causes.
