Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2015
This description of Noa Lodeizen's work was prepared when Noa Lodeizen was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Current juvenile justice systems around the world are failing, both for youth themselves and for society. Asserting that the current system of imprisoning youths is more destructive than rehabilitative, Noa works to ensure that youths in conflict with the law get a real chance at reintegrating into society by tapping into their creativity. Next to offering an alternative solution, Noa also seeks to start the international conversation about juvenile reform – from imprisoning youths to engaging youths in alternative solutions that reform the juvenile justice systems around the world.
