News from Jarit in May 2014

Once finished the workshops, we made two Skype calls with a Senegalese AJSS Association (Association des Jeunes pour la Solidarité et la Sensibilisation). Firstly we introduced ourselves and then talked about the MDG 1, and then about the second MDG2, gender. In the coming months other Skype calls and exchanges are planned.

We have been creating awareness actions and on May 18th, as part of the World Fair Trade Day held in Valencia, we conducted a performance on the distribution of natural resources in the world. Who produces, how are the resources distributed and how do the continents look like in terms of natural resources distribution after the commercial negotiations. The performance was a success. Hundreds of people were able to understand why natural resources are distributed unfairly. All materials used were recycled, cardboard boxes picked up from the local supermarkets to dramatize the natural resources.

JARIT - Newsletter March 2014

Jarit is finishing the workshops with youngsters. Very interesting experiences for the young people to approach into the project.

We are sharing ideas with the power team about gadgets, awareness actions, final video, etc…

On the 5th of March we met to carry out a discussion about what does mean politic and also what does mean the educational policies.

We produced a video with all our ideas about these topics to share with other groups in Europe and to create a discussion about the 2MDG: Education for everybody.

Therefore at the end of the video there is a question for you: “How manages your state the educational policies and what do you think about it?

It’s important to know what the state does for the educations, which are the educational policies, what do you think about it and what we can do in our position as society.
