Global Youth Forum in Bali, Indonesia
4-6 December, 2012
Youth at the heart of rights and development!
Applications are now open to participate in the Global Youth Forum (GYF), a key youth event that will take place from 4-6th of December in Bali, Indonesia.
Led by young people for young people and co-hosted by UNFPA and the Indonesian government, the Conference will revolve around issues relevant to young people across the globe—specifically in the areas of staying healthy, getting an education, employment and livelihood, families and well-being and inclusive civic participation—in an effort to link these concerns to the broader ICPD conversation.
We are proud to share that WAGGGS will be supporting the Global Youth Forum as a member of the Steering Committee!
APPLY and Spread the News!
While applicants under the age of 30 will be considered, young people between the ages of 18 and 24 are particularly encouraged to apply.
Over 900 delegates will agree on global recommendations for action on five crucial issues:
- Staying healthy
- Comprehensive education
- Transitions to decent employment for youth
- Sexuality, families and rights
- Fully inclusive civic participation
Can't get to Bali? You can be part of the Forum wherever you are!
If you can't get to the Forum in Bali, you will still have the chance to fully participate as a Global Youth Forum virtual delegate. Applications for virtual delegates will open on 16th September. Virtual delegates can be younger - registrations are open to young people aged 14-30.
