Created in 2004, the Youth’s Forum of Belo Horizonte and its Metropolitan Region is an articulation of groups, movements, organizations and autonomous activists who develop activities with youth or/and are integrated by young people of Belo Horizonte and Metropolitan Region. We achieve mobilization, education, communication and political advocacy actions, related to the defense and guarantee of the youth rights and with the construction of inclusive and democratic youth public policies. Since 2012, fighting the violence against young people is our main guideline.
HOW DO WE ORGANIZE OURSELVES?
We act through a network, basing our activities on several experiences, people’s and organizations availabilities which are part of the Forum. We bet on engagement, on collaborative work and on the horizontality.
Management Group: it’s open to the participation of activists and group’s representatives which are part of Forum. It’s the main space of deliberation about our political positions and our activities.
Executive Secretary: it’s a permanent team, responsible for the accomplishment of the decisions made within Management Group.
