WHO WE ARE
WE ARE HERE TO BUILD CAPACITIES, INSPIRE ACTION AND CONNECT PEOPLE AND CAUSES
At Global Platform El Salvador we support movements, youth networks, organisations and individuals who promote the agenda of progressive youth-led change.
We have developed an effective methodology for designing, carrying out and evaluating capacity building. All activities are based on our participatory and action-oriented learning principles:

SUPPORTING YOUTH-LED INITIATIVES
We also support several non-curricular initiatives, which seek to strategize, plan, carry out and evaluate different forms of youth-led organising and direct action.
The Global Platform is a dynamic and inspiring environment where young people can think freely, develop their own ideas and connect, discuss and act on local, national and global political issues. We frequently organise or host network meetings, debates, film forums in the central square of Suchitoto, photo expositions and concerts in rural communities, youth festivals and various campaign activities.
El Lab is a Central American youth-led music and video lab for creative activism. It is located in the Global Platform building in Suchitoto, El Salvador. The scope of El Lab is to offer a space for developing and supporting musicians and video makers from the region. It also hosts Global Platform training programmes within music activism and video making. For more information, check out the YouTube channel of EL LAB.
