The role of young people and their intervention in the social changes that take place in the region, were the focus of discussions in the workshop Youth and participation in Latin America, recently carried out at the José Martí University (Uniss) of Sancti Spiritus, central Cuba.
Venezuelan youth leader Carlos Alberto Soto Soto, who was invited to the event, told Escambray about the experiences shared on the development of the potentialities of young people in the process of social transformation.
