During this event students presented two projects of the “I can” project which operates worldwide, in which children and young people are empowered to change the world.

One of the projects is from Colombia, carried out by high school students and focuses on helping the coffee farmers of their town to use clean energy.

And the other is a testimony of two girls from Valladolid/ Spain who share their experiences with the use of the Design for Change methodology, changing their personal, social and environmental contexts.
