The World Conference on Youth 2014-'Mainstreaming Youth Participation in the Post 2015 Development Agenda'

The World Conference on Youth 2014 sought to provide an inclusive platform for young people, youth experts, civil society organizations, Ministers in charge of the subject of Youth affairs and other relevant stakeholders from all over the world to come together and discuss the of 'Mainstreaming Youth Participation in the Post 2015 Development Agenda'.

The World Conference on Youth was held in Colombo, Sri-Lanka from the 6th to 10th May at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH) with the participation of youth delegates (18-28 years) from 106 countries; in attendance was also our CEO, Mr. Kirungi Micheal. 

The conference sought to promulgate an inter-generational dialogue, at the end of which participants came up with a joint declaration of commitment.

The primary recommendation of the conference participants was that to involve the youth in national development agenda, local youth should come together and form Local Youth Advisory Councils, YACs/Parliaments in their districts.

District YACs then provide recommendations and guidance around issues affecting young people and those important to them and the community to the National Youth Organizations/Councils, NYCs who then take appropriate action (s).

Local youth serving organizations should provide technical assistance to the YACs to enable them achieve their objectives.

We are grateful to our CEO for fully representing the foundation and making sure our work of involving the young generation into asset based local development (Youth Civic Engagement) received recommendation to be included into the new global development agenda.-this is line with the conference’s theme ‘Mainstreaming Youth Participation in the Post 2015 Development Agenda’.
