Channeling the Vocal and Provocative Youth: Designing Youth Forums to Meet the OGP and SDGs Agendas

15:10 - 16:30
Room 205, Shaw Centre

The future of civic engagement is only as good as the relationship between governments and youth. The actual involvement of young people will determine the long term sustainability and impact of the OGP and the SDGs. We will go from exploring the main objectives and the benefits of youth engagement in civic participation, to success stories of youth CSOs taking action with impactful results, to examples of institutionalised structured dialogue between government and young people, as participants will showcase their inspiring experiences. We want to learn more about the approaches, best practices and challenges, in order to strengthen participants` knowledge on youth civic engagement. The session aims to explore the key factors sought to design OGP Youth Forums as an institutional component in the framework of OGP country and local level, as a strategic outcome for a stronger OGP. The session will expand participants` practical capacity to capitalize on youth perspective, by facilitating best practices exchange and by developing a checklist and/or a roadmap on how to build and grow a sustainable relationship between youth organizations and government.
