As part of the planned activities, International IDEA organized the workshop “Articulation of Youth groups in order to Impact Public Policies in Governance” to provide support to youth organizations in the development of articulations to address the impact on public policies.

The workshop was held on Wednesday, 23 August 2017, in order to learn about the experiences of the women’s networks development around the Gender Agenda. Paola Yañez from the Afro-Bolivian Center for Integral and Community Development (CADIC) advised about her experience as a young activist in the coordination of various women's organizations as a specific political subject that can effectively influence the contents of the new Political Constitution that was in the process of development. On the other hand, we had the presentation of Rosario Ricaldí, from the Coordinadora de la Mujer  who narrated in a very didactic way the strategy of the work carried out for the drafting of the Gender Agenda, based on the articulation already put in place.

In the second part of the workshop the participants split into work groups and provided with public policy proposals and time schedules, to be worked on.
