    Fikra

    Citizens achieve more and more new technologies and become passionate about social networks. These are booming in recent years and are growing in daily life, recent studies have shown that more than half of the members say that the use of social networks make them more productive.

    That’s why we thought of a project to facilitate the exchange between different actors composing the Moroccan society: students, employees,union  or parliamentary representatives, associations militants …

    This project will have as aim:

    • Give aserene framework for exchange and dialogue between citizens
    • Give theyoung people the opportunity to speak and to be heard
    • To allowall citizens to engage in the development of their country and to take some responsibility.

    This logic of transmitting ideas ideas and their discussion makes our platform a space for discussion and exchange. This intersection allows youth to express them selves freely and without taboo, in respect, tolerance and open-mindedness. These discussions help to step back from one self, integrate other components to expand our vision together to perform a self-criticism. This approach is one of the bases of self-reflection and on the way we are led to draw together.

    Fikra

    Citizens achieve more and more new technologies and become passionate about social networks. These are booming in recent years and are growing in daily life, recent studies have shown that more than half of the members say that the use of social networks make them more productive.

    That’s why we thought of a project to facilitate the exchange between different actors composing the Moroccan society: students, employees,union  or parliamentary representatives, associations militants …

    This project will have as aim:

    • Give aserene framework for exchange and dialogue between citizens
    • Give theyoung people the opportunity to speak and to be heard
    • To allowall citizens to engage in the development of their country and to take some responsibility.

    This logic of transmitting ideas ideas and their discussion makes our platform a space for discussion and exchange. This intersection allows youth to express them selves freely and without taboo, in respect, tolerance and open-mindedness. These discussions help to step back from one self, integrate other components to expand our vision together to perform a self-criticism. This approach is one of the bases of self-reflection and on the way we are led to draw together.
