UNESCO Training Session on Youth Participation and Advocacy in Indonesia

© World Bank, Curt Carnemark
Youth in Indonesia

This 4-Days training aims to provide capacity-building for young women and men, members of grass-roots youth organizations on youth-led advocacy, leadership, and community engagement.

Activities will explore the great variety of ways in which youth can contribute to their communities through active participation.

A particular focus will be given on the participation of vulnerable and marginalized youth groups, youth living in rural areas, youth living with disabilities and youth from disadvantaged regions.

By building skills we also refer to the concept of lifelong education in its broadest sense, seeking human development at both personal and professional level, provision of knowledge that will help youth build their character as individuals, as active members of their societies, in other words: prepare them to access the expanding labour market and for the challenges of adulthood.

This training is part of UNESCO’s strategies of “Building Skills for Youth Empowerment and Civic Engagement in Indonesia” & “Capacity building in key skills such as leadership, governance, communication, planning and advocacy.”
