Get involved in Mexico City

A very good way to engage with the culture as a young person is to participate in local organisations dedicated to ecology, urban development, human rights, women rights, small enterprises, democracy, among many others. This is a great way to get to know other young people, but also the communities where they come from. By doing this, you will come across a mosaic of cultures and learn a lot about how people interact with one another in the mosaic of cultures that blend indigenous, European, and other migrant cultures.

If you are a researcher, a professor or an artist, you need to get in touch with the local universities such as UNAM, Tec de Monterrey and Iberoamerican University, as well as cultural public and private organisations such as the Anthropology Museum and Laboratorio Arte Alameda to know about seminars, conferences and other types of events.
