Hello social rights supporters!

Your Coyote editorial team had quite a time participating in the Enter! Youth Week at the European Youth Centre – so many amazing people from mixed generations engaged in youth work from so many different places based in at least three continents. One of the slogans I heard was “Download global – upload local!” and Enter! was a prime example of that spirit.

As you can see, Coyote is definitely reflecting world views this time! Take a trip through our first articles and:

see how dance improves young people’s access to social rights, personal development and quality of life;

listen hard to some really revealing statements from young people about their impressions and strong emotions about being in Enter!;

touch the creativity of the Youth Express Network as its member organisations put the Enter! recommendation into practice;

follow the passionate history of Bué Fixe from Sao Tome to Portugal in support of young people’s rights;

decolonise youth work from a brilliant perspective from Kenya.

More articles are on their way early next year – we will keep you informed via our Facebook page (remember to “like” us!) and the Partnership’s newsletter.

Throughout Coyote’s history there have been some brilliant articles about access of young people to their social rights. It is really worth having a look through our archive – a phenomenal amount of work by the Youth Partnership team to scan the old paper versions and upload them too! Editions 1 to 4 are also to be found in their French versions.

Many thanks for all contributions and, of course, heartfelt thanks to the members of the Coyote editorial team:

  • Larissa Nenning
  • Marinela Šumanjski
  • Véronique Bertolle
  • Viktoria Karpatszki

to our great illustrators:

May the Spirit of Spiffy go with you!
