Jhon was a leading student activist at the UCV university in Caracas and will be discussing the progressive changes for young people and students in Venezuela under the Chavez government that have seen free education expanded to millions and huge programmes to encourage youth engagement and inclusion including a newly established Ministry for Youth. He will also look at practical ideas on how we can build stronger links between students and young people in Venezuela and the Britain.
