For Young People

The future of every democracy is linked to the formation and vision of its youth. It was this belief that inspired the MPPU to promote its ideology in various countries through a network of schools – a move that aims to inspire change and encourage social and political participation from young people.
For example: Argentina has introduced ‘Popular Schools’ as educational hubs so the young can actively participate in their communities. Ideally this stems from a need to empower disadvantaged areas with lower levels of education.

Goals

The end goal is not primarily the formation of political leaders, but the growth of responsible networks in civil society. By this we mean a society that is able to facilitate and increase positive processes for development and democracy.
Specific Objectives:
•    To offer analysis and intervention in the social and political fields which are suited to current challenges
•    To constitute forums for ideas and political initiatives in city spaces for communitarian formation, ideas and political initiatives - where young people can learn and exercise their rights and duties of citizenship with competence, starting from one’s own territory.

Formation proposal

The formation proposal is rooted in the cultural and spiritual patrimony of the MPPU.
The program’s courses are annual or bi-annual, and deal with the main political, economic, social and cultural – as well as local, national and international issues. This proposal has been shaped based on the paradigm of universal fraternity as a political category.
The Scientific Committee and the teaching community are made up of experts from various disciplinary fields, many of whom hold posts in various academic institutions and are willing to extend their free expertise.

Methodology

The program mainly aims to integrate classroom activities with workshops and participatory courses in the cities and the local territoires.
The lessons are taught with the help of multimedia and web links with a number of schools. This also includes dedicated websites with interactive platforms as a support to the program.  
Thematic conferences, integrative seminars and the exchange of experiences between various schools are an integral part of this project.
