PHILIPSBURG:--- The Forum will take place under the general theme "Young Global Citizens for a Sustainable Planet", focusing on how young women and men, as global citizens, can contribute to building sustainability, from the global to the local level.
The 9th UNESCO Youth Forum will take place a few weeks after the UN General Assembly would have debated and adopted the new Sustainable Development Goals – SDGs (September 2015) and one month before the 21st Conference of Parties (COP 21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change - UNFCCC (30 November – 11 December 2015). This unique moment provides a strategic opportunity for UNESCO to offer a visible platform through which young women and men can voice their opinions that could also feed into the discussion around UNESCO's future role, in the context of the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Organization.
Education and skills for sustainable development and employability, diversity and culture of peace, rights and freedoms, and climate change are some of the topics for discussion at the upcoming forum.
The Forum's outputs will be composed of strategic recommendations and action projects, and will be presented at the 38th session of the General Conference.
Application Requirements for the 9th UNESCO Youth Forum:
