Rafaela Youth Parliament
The Youth Parliament of the Municipality of Rafaela is a participation space intended for all young people under 30 years of age, dependent on the Secretariat for Management and Participation and the Subsecretariat for Institutional Strengthening. For its establishment, open meetings were convened, where volunteer participants were able to form their own Organization and Functioning Regulations. By means of the election of representatives, this space allows the analysis and the debate of diverse subjects of work, and it meets periodically to collaborate with the construction of a vision of an inclusive city in close collaboration with the municipal government. It is also a space designed for the political and civic formation of the youth of this locality.
