9th UNESCO Youth Forum

The 10th UNESCO Youth Forum will take place at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, from 25 to 26 October 2017.

The Forum will bring together expert youth from all regions of the world to discuss pertinent issues related to UNESCO fields of competence that they will identify during a preparatory phase earlier in the year.

During the forum a series of recommended actions and priorities will be drafted to guide UNESCO’s youth actions for the next biennium. These will be presented at the 39th Session of the UNESCO General Conference.

Since 1999, the UNESCO Youth Forum have provided an innovative, ongoing opportunity for youth to work in dialogue with UNESCO, to shape and direct the Organization’s approach and to present their concerns and ideas to Member States.

Every two years, young women and men come together at UNESCO’S Headquarters in Paris for several days of debate and discussion about pertinent issues related to the Organization’s fields of competence.

At the end of the Forum, a list of recommendations is presented to the General Conference, reflecting the pressing needs and concerns of youth today.
