HCCD conducted awareness meetings in Palestinian universities,Gaza Strip and a petition signing campaign on “Enhancing Youth Participation in Municipal Councils” and “Promoting Youth Participation in NGOs”.
These meetings came in the context of a project implemented by the Center entitled “Towards the promotion of human rights culture among young people.”
Through this project, an intensive training program was implemented for a group of young people on the concepts of “civil society, democracy, gender and development, youth participation, human rights”.
The trainees then implemented awareness meetings with the aim of enhancing youth participation in spreading the culture of human rights and respecting public freedoms in Palestinian society, especially among the students.
Hundreds of signatures have been collected calling for enhancing youth participation in both student councils and NGOs from some universities in the Gaza Strip, as part of the importance of achieving the principle of community participation and youth assuming leadership positions in community institutions.
