Decídete México Cancún

Problem Statement

Young people in Mexico need to become actively involved in political participation to build a strong and just democracy in the country. The low political participation of young people is a significant obstacle on the path towards a more robust and fair democracy in Mexico and should be effectively addressed. According to INEGI, only 17% of young people aged 18 to 29 voted in the presidential elections of 2018.


Target Group

Young people between 18 and 29 years old in Mexico.


Proposed Solution

We will periodically produce and perform information sessions, flyers, forums and events to provide young people with all the information about all political candidates as the voting season approaches.
