GEA are excited to announce an upcoming conference in Wales: Educating ‘Agenda’ – Supporting Young People In Making Positive Relationships Matter. With equality, diversity, children’s rights and social justice at its heart, AGENDA enables young people to speak out on gender and sexual injustices and violence through their own and others’ change-making practices. It’s an affirmative, ethical-political and creative approach to learn about and change deeply entrenched and complex issues.
