On July 14th the 0th meeting of PAPII (Active Participation for Peace) with young people from Besòs and the surrounding area took place at Institut Barri Besòs.

We were very much looking forward to this meeting, because it was the first time that we presented the project directly to the young people and we wanted to hear their visions first hand.

The initiative is to accompany a group of young people from the neighborhood in the construction of an international youth exchange. Two years in which they reflect and share experiences about the space in which they study, maintain relationships and live…

During the meeting, we could feel the excitement and desire to create a momentum of change in the neighborhood. The main concerns of the group were the lack of leisure and meeting spaces for young people in the Besòs, gender and ecology . At the same time, they proudly defended community spirit and intercultural diversity.

We take this message to thank everyone who participated in person or virtually.

At Nexes, we believe that it is important to give youth a voice, that you are the ones who will lead and help shape the improvements the neighborhood needs. So if you are young and want to be a part of PAPII, we are waiting for you in this 2021/2022 class! We will have the second meeting on September 9 on the Barri Besòs Institut at 17:30.

With the support of: Barcelona City Council.
