World Conference on Youth 2014: NYCI is delighted to share initial outcomes from this significant event for young people, youth and development policy which took place last week in Sri Lanka. See the links below.
Over 1,500 young people and policy makers worked hard to agree a Youth Declaration on a vision for youth and young people from 2015 and beyond. We would welcome comments on the Youth Declaration and hope to bring you additional information particularly from our two Irish representatives in the near future.
Governments and NGOs around the world are developing policies and holding discussions on how best to tackle key issues that prevent people from actively engaging in their society – whether rich or poor. Much work is underway to bring about positive change and YOU have a role to play in this. We will endeavour to keep you up to date on happenings. In the meantime, see the links below and feel free to get in touch with comments/questions. Thanks
