Civic Engagement and Social Inclusion of Youth in Indonesia

Published on


Youth are considered key actors and partners in UNESCO's mission to contribute to the building of peace, the eradication of poverty, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue. UNESCO believes that participatory and strategic involvement of young women and men in outreach, volunteerism and bureaucracy can bridge the gap between the formal institutions and youth, including vulnerable, disadvantaged and marginalised groups, filling a critical gap of unmet needs. The Youth programme of UNESCO Office Jakarta aims to build the capacity of young women and men, members of grass-roots youth organizations on youth-led advocacy, leadership and community engagement, providing the youth with the necessary knowledge to contribute to their communities through active participation. This programme also aims to support young women and men to reach out to democratic institutions and elected officials through the provision of effective channels of communication that will enable them to raise their voices and be listened by policy-makers and decision-makers.
