Because youth represent a significant proportion of the world’s population they heavily influence and, equally, are affected by social, political and economic conditions and the well-being and livelihood of current and future generations, we are resolved to ensure that youth is included as one of UNESCO’s global priorities. (An excerpt from the report).
The 7th UNESCO Youth Forum, which took place from 17th to 20th October 2011, in Paris, France brought together about 210 youth delegates, representing 127 Member States to discuss “How Youth Drive Change.”
At the end of the forum, the delegates came up with some recommendations to improve Education, Sustainable Development, Youth participation and general improvements to the Youth Forum to ensure full support, real engagement and maximum participation.
The General Conference of UNESCO at its 35th session will include the Youth Forum as a separate item on its agenda and it will be discussed for the first time in its Programme Commissions
