Education, Culture and Communication
With the objective of transforming young people into active agents in the defense and development of their territories, Cabocla Web is a collaborative platform for mobilization, training and support of youth groups in the communities of Western Pará. With the support of PSA and of other local actors, these teams carry out socio-educational and cultural actions and activism campaigns in defense of fundamental rights for the entire population. Topics include land/territory, citizenship, gender issues, children and adolescent rights, environmental education, forest preservation and valuing the cultural identity of the Amazon communities (indigenous, quilombolas, riverside).
Cabocla Web Pillars
Cabocla Web Festival
The Festival, organized by PSA, provides the closest contact with young people. The program includes round tables, conversation circles, free expression, cultural performances, collective art creation workshops and multimedia projects. The participating groups also plan small local projects related to child and adolescent rights.
Youth Leadership Training
Cabocla Web trains riverside community youth for social engagement, knowledge of public policies and youth activism. This training takes place through debates, reflections and participatory planning of socio-educational activities to be developed in the communities by these young people themselves.
Partnerships with other organizations and youth networks, with Engajamundo being an example, helps to train and promote Amazonian youth activism nationally and internationally
Support to Youth Groups
In tandem with its partners, PSA has trained several youth groups to organize independently. From this work, about 10 community groups from the Tapajós-Arapiuns Extractive Reserve (Resex) and the Tapajós National Forest joined forces with the Tapajós Youth Group which, in addition to its own actions and campaigns, can begin to support the formation of new groups.
Among the projects created through the Cabocla Web is a vertical garden at the Suruacá community school; an awareness campaign on the Statute of Children and Adolescents in the community of São Pedro; the rural radio production “Rádio Mosquito” in Carão; the school newspaper “Conexão Cipó” in Anã; environmental education projects in the Muratuba and São Francisco villages (Parauá); the “Areia Branca” Cultural Identity Festival in Urucureá; the “Olhar Kumaruara” Community Cinema, in the Solimões village; and a dance project focused on health and education in the community of Pedra Branca.
