Open Cafe: Active Citizenship pt. 2

Open Cafe Magenta 12.02.2020
By: Oscar Boldrini

This Week Open Cafe session, which is held every Wednesday at  9pm in Magenta, was dedicated to understand active citizenship and what young people can do, it is the second edition and the continuation of the OC held on 22 January 2020

We began the event with the name game “I’m unique because” and with the energizer “stand up and run”, in order to break some ice with the newcomers and to step up the energy of the group. Lot of smiles and fun around there!! Once the energy was restored in our guests, oour participants started to regroup themselves in the thematic tables they were developing in the Open Cafe: Active citizenship pt.1.

This time, we asked them to seek and go deeper in the anlysis of the social issue, guiding the discussions with one facilitator per table. Some guidelines for upcoming strategies to solve some local social issues came out.

It has been really emotional to see so many youngsters committed! A Final debriefing, to show the results of those guidelines was done by the “leaders” of the tables. A super interesting final thought was focused on the fact that only changing little things you can change a “a lot”.

See you next Wednesday for another super Open Cafè with us!!
