Implemented through the Youth Solidarity Fund with the support of:
Bridging Past Present and Future
In this UWC Short Course implemented through the Youth Solidarity Fund with the support of UNAOC, Bridging Past Present and Future (BPPF) explored pre- and post-colonial narratives as well as their relationship with our current political reality and equipped our youth participants with the necessary tools to question pre-existing narratives, construct alternative discourse and devise solution-based approaches to identity-based differences in our communities and society.
A 2-Week Immersion into History, Politics and Youth Engagement
Our participants ages 16-19 learned, discussed and debated about the Malayan Emergency, social media freedom, local conflicts as well as youth mobilisation in contemporary politics. By placing themselves in the shoes of various positions throughout time, they developed greater empathy towards different communities and recognise the ways in which historical narratives are consumed as well how to consume them critically.
A Curriculum to Empower Youth to become Changemakers in their Own Circles
Our participants were guided and equipped to develop their own community engagement projects to better understand ways to think about identity-based differences in our society. In order to do so, participants learned how to canvas a community, project planning, problem analysis, solution mapping and post-project reflection.
