16-20 травня в Аргентині відбудеться Міжнародний молодіжний форум

Участь у форумі, що відбудеться в Буйнос-Айросі, можуть взяти молоді активісти, члени та волонтери громадських організацій.

The Youth Coalition (YC) is an international network of like-minded young advocates (aged 15-29) who are promoting sexual and reproductive rights of young people internationally. We are students, researchers, volunteers, educators, NGO (non-governmental organization) workers, and activists. The YC was formed during a meeting on the 5-year review of the United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD+5). Our activities are focused around three main areas: awareness raising, training, and information.

The Youth Coalition is calling for applications to participate in its international youth forum with the theme: Development – is it for or against our sexual and reproductive rights? This 5-day forum will bring together approximately 70 young activists from around the world who work in development issues related to young people’s sexual and reproductive rights. The participants will discuss, document and make recommendations and strategies on development issues using the current framework of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)1. The forum will also consist of training and information sharing sessions related to advocacy, MDGs, youth participation, youth organizations and sexual and reproductive rights.
