It pretends to be an enriching source of ideas and debates between all social agents, that will allow to define the main lines of work that will be implemented through the Program of Social Inclusion of Minors throughout year.

This Forum will carry out in November 20th, 21th and 22th, 2016, on the occasion of “The International Children’s Day” in Alfredo Kraus Auditorium of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

Jurists, professors or public officials linked to the Juvenile and Social Affairs areas will take part to deal with aspects as family conciliation, protection of rights of young people against media and freedom of expression, as well as the legislative differences and similarities in different countries in the figure of teenagers with the purpose of integrate the young people, who are in social exclusion in society.

A constructive message will be sent through different conferences and committees, giving the necessary tools to enjoy life with healthy habits with no need of resorting to alcohol or drugs.

We influence positive and viable models, in order to show a healthy and creative funny style, and we avoid to stigmatize information and people.
