Greetings from the Youth Assembly organising team and the Stockholm+50 Youth Task Force!
This May-June 2022, hundreds of young people from all over the world in Stockholm and several thousands online will convene for the youth-led Stockholm+50 Youth Assembly.
Right before the UN member states and stakeholders convene for the very crucial Stockholm+50 International Meeting, young passionate advocates from all over the world will gather - in person in Stockholm and online - to make sure that the voice of their generation is heard. The Stockholm+50 Youth Assembly will take place on the 31st of May and the 1st June 2022 in a hybrid format based out of Stockholm. We invite you to visit more details on: www.youthstockholm50.global. We are grateful to generous support received from the government of Sweden, government of Finland, Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and the Nordic Council of Ministers (NCM) that is enabling funded participation of more than 70 young people - especially from countries of global south - at the Stockholm+50 alongside several further youth that will join supported by their organisations or self-funded.
Right from the environmental crisis, future of multilateralism and rights of young people to triple planetary crisis and nature destruction due to conflicts - everything is on the agenda, as the future of billions of children and youth is at stake.
We are excited and pleased to call on organizations, groups, agencies, youth partners and movements as well as individuals to submit Programme Contribution proposals to contribute to the agenda of Youth Assembly and its goals. Both participants and programme contributors to the Youth Assembly shall gather knowledge, experience and expertise by being involved.
We welcome contributions of diverse sort and format (right from panel discussions, workshops, art contributions, training, lecture, webinars, wellbeing sessions, etc) of diverse scopes (global, regional, national, grassroots) from various stakeholders. You can organise it during the Youth Assembly in-person or online. These Program Contributions will help shape the overall agenda of the Youth Assembly complementing the standing sessions such as plenary, thematic and regional working group meetings.
Applications are open until: Friday 20th May 2022
