Gonzales joins youth convention in Jakarta, Indonesia

 

 

 

Congratulations to Ms. Nicole Gonzales, a second year Bachelor of Secondary Education major in Science who completed and actively participated the 1st NAPP Youth Convention – Asia Pacific Level in Jakarta, Indonesia on May 8-10, 2023.

 

This youth convention was organized by the Network of Asia Pacific Producers (NAPP) and Fairtrade International, and supported by the European Commission’s Framework Partnership Agreement Project.

 

Around 40 young Fairtrade leaders from the NAPP region, as well as external experts and practitioners discussed the challenges faced by young people in rural communities: relatively high unemployment, marginalization, a lack of appropriate resources, and poor career prospects.

 

This activity aimed to provide platform for forward-thinking young people to share their experiences, get inspired by others, and gain new knowledge that can be later shared within their own communities.
