Advancing Young People’s Meaningful Participation and Engagement in Forced Displacement Contexts
Co-organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, ILO, UNICEF and UNHCR, the side event will aim to:
- Raise awareness among youth globally on the challenges faced by young refugees, IDPs and youth from host communities.
- Spotlight partnerships with refugee youth and refugee youth-led initiatives bringing about positive change in their communities despite the challenges.
- Share innovative approaches and partnerships in advancing young people’s engagement and meaningful participation in forced displacement contexts.
- Engage in an interactive dialogue between young people, especially young refugees, and stakeholders working with and for youth, including governments, international organizations, NGOs and youth-led organizations, on how we can effectively promote meaningful youth engagement in forced displacement contexts.
