We had the pleasure to talk to Miriam de la Rosa, Coordinator of Children and Youth at Coglobal. On this occasion, she exposes the case of Children’s Agora and the influence that the project has on the dynamics that are taking place in various educational centers in Andalusia.
Ágora Infantil is a project that is implemented in several municipalities in Andalusia, more specifically Archidona, Ardales, El Burgo, Casa Bermeja, Puente Genil and Trigueros (incorporated in the 2014-2015 academic year program) and Almáchar, Huelva, Lucena and Riogordo. The project participates within the educational schedule that the municipal schools had. The classrooms have the function of serving as a random sample as a representation of the population. The work generated in these centers serves to encourage citizen participation at an early age, in the case of Ágora Infantil the age range is between 10 and 14 years old. The dynamics implemented in the classrooms have the value of breaking the barrier between municipalities and young people, bringing the proposals generated in class closer to promoting the importance of their participation through reflection, listening and the debate of ideas.
