11th UNESCO Youth Forum – Youth Spaces in Action!

The 11th UNESCO Youth Forum – Youth Spaces in Action will take place at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France, on 18 and 19 November 2019, during the 40th session of UNESCO’s General Conference. This Forum will encourage dialogue, experience- and knowledge-sharing, peer learning and cooperation among young change-makers and youth representatives, with UNESCO and its Members States, and with other stakeholders.

Every two years, youth meet at UNESCO’s Headquarters to discuss the challenges we face today falling within UNESCO’s fields of competence.

This year, the Forum will be the opportunity to showcase and discuss good practices in youth engagement with UNESCO in the context of the Youth Space Initiative or other projects that youth have developed with the support of the Organization. Therefore, the potential youth participants can only be nominated by UNESCO structures. The participants have already been selected to join UNESCO’s discussions from different UNESCO projects around the world!

Ankur Shah, representing the UNESCO Silk Roads Programme will share his Experiences of Youth Engagement with UNESCO during the first panel on Monday 18 November.
