Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1996
This description of César Cardenas's work was prepared when César Cardenas was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1996.
César Cárdenas is transforming the field of youth development in Ecuador through the systematic application of the principles of youth participation in all aspects of public life. In so doing, he is actively subverting the typical "one-way road" of adult-youth relations in Latin American culture to an exhilarating two-way thoroughfare.
