JAAKLAC Community

The JAAKLAC Community was created in 2024 to activate a future from broader perspectives and synchronised with realities from Latin American and the World Majority. We openly invite to dialogue and organise collective actions in critical digital education and youth participation.

In 2024, JAAKLAC set Intentions based on projects that we want to keep, change and try. These are iterated with the JAAKLAC Community to create new compasses and drive projects that move us locally and are strengthened in collaboration with partners in the region and the world.

We are currently organising in bi-weekly meetings and asynchronous activities to: (a) talk about the purpose, governance, activities and sustainability of JAAKLAC; and (b) materialise projects, to start and strengthen actions in critical digital education by and for diverse groups. The Community being mainly facilitated in Spanish.

We want to expand the self-organised and coordinated community, facilitated from different languages and regions.

Let’s make the road as we walk!
