Youth Consultation on UN Post 2015 Development Agenda

Published on


On 18 February 2013, UNESCO Jakarta Office in coordination with the UN Office of the Resident Coordinator in Indonesia undertook a consultation of youth on the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The consultation was conducted as part of UNESCO Jakarta Office’s Youth Programme to support capacity-building for young women and men in Indonesia while ensuring participation and expression of voices in the policymaking process that will determine their own future. Prior to the consultations, UNESCO Jakarta Office, in collaboration with the local NGO Sekitar-kita, hosted a 5-day programme for the empowerment of Indonesian youth. The agenda included training on Youth-led Initiatives and Civic Engagement and research-based discussion on youth policies in Indonesia. This consultation on the UN Post-2015 Development Agenda was positioned on the fourth day. Taking advantage of having youth participants from various provinces in Indonesia, UNESCO took the opportunity to consult youth about their concerns and opinions of the future they want, and conducted a reduced version of the UN Consultation Process.
