WHO WE ARE
WE ARE HERE TO BUILD CAPACITIES, INSPIRE ACTION AND CONNECT PEOPLE AND CAUSES
At Global Platform Zambia we support movements, youth networks, organisations and individuals who promote the agenda of progressive youth-led change.
Being a part of an experienced network of existing platforms around the world, 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 coffee bar discussions, radical nights and youth events right at the platform.
GlobZED café is a free and safe space for young people to share and discuss ideas – from political perspectives, health issues, ideas for creative activism and much more. As part of this initiative a pop-up radio has been set up to cover issues that has been discussed in the café, so it can be shared with other young people who are not able to join the café discussions and events.
