Over 2 days in May 2011 85 people from 45 countries gathered in North London for the global youth policy symposium, ‘Meaningful Youth Participation in International Decision Making: Principles, Practice and Standards for the Future’. The gathering brought together young people, multilateral agencies, NGOs and researchers to share practice, explore challenges and develop recommendations for more meaningful international youth participation.

The symposium covered a lot of ground in two days and the participants developed a number of concrete recommendations for better international youth participation. The report (pdf) is now available.

We also produced a video at and about the youth policy symposium with various impressions and voices from the event – thanks to Gonzalo and his crew!
