Meaningful Participation by Young People in International Decision-making: Principles, Practice and Standards for the Future
The British Council and the Open Society Foundations are supporting the London Symposium which is taking place on 16-18 May 2011, in partnership with the British Youth Council and the Commonwealth Youth Exchange Council. The event will bring together a diverse group of over 60 stakeholders from around the world engaged in youth participation and international programmes. It will explore the approaches and settings for youth participation in international governance and help to strengthen the development of international policy and practice in this field. The symposium will distil good practice and provide the foundation for internationally recognised and supported standards for youth participation in international decision-making. It will comprise multi-stakeholder dialogues; thematic working groups; focused input from decision-makers, and a voice for young people.
