Working with Youth: Understanding the Ways Forward

January 11, 2016 Featured Image Youth Strat Blog

We kicked off 2016 with a 2-day strategizing meeting with some ARROW partners as well as friends and allies in order to discuss the needs of young people, challenges and realities as well as to strategize how we can work towards overcoming them. The key points from the meeting were graphically recorded with the hope that viewers (both participants as well as those who weren’t at the event) would be better able to remember and grasp the content and concepts.

*Graphic recording is the art of ‘live-capture’ of complex concepts and words, through sketches / illustrations. More at http://tak-tik.com/EN/graphicrecording/

We have shared the resulting graphics below (click to enlarge).
