Why TAGe?

The world is home to more than 1.8 billion young people. More often than not, these young people are pushed to the periphery of the policymaking process in the areas of education, peace, sustainability and global citizenship; they are not viewed as key stakeholders. MGIEP believes that any strategy aimed at the youth cannot be successful without their voice being heard by policymakers. Effective youth engagement should include incorporating perspectives from young people into each component of policymaking, education opportunities, program planning and other vital national/international decision-making avenues. This lies at the core of the Talking Across Generations on Education project.

What is TAGe?

TAGe is a youth-driven intergenerational dialogue on education. Freire (1970) stated that human nature is dialogic and that communication has a leading role in our life, especially in transforming oppressive, hegemonic structures. TAGe is Freirean in that it is premised on the centrality of the transformative nature of dialogue. Premised on this centrality of dialogue for societal transformation with a temporal twist – ‘across generations’, this unique platform brings together selected and highly-qualified youth representatives in a face-to-face flat dialogue on education with senior decision-makers on issues of common concern.
