Upcoming YLYP Events
Youth Morning Briefing
The Youth Morning Briefing will create a space where young people can hear how Member States are integrating youth issues into the CSW and the outcome document process. It will also allow for young people to share with Member States their substantive suggestions and unique perspectives on the Commission priority and review themes.
Connect and network with mentors and other youth activists! Join this informal meet and greet session to connect with selected YLYP Global Mentors for Youth Leaders. We hope this event can be the start of new meaningful mentorships and relationships between activists of all ages and experiences!
Join NGO CSW/NY’s Consultation Day this Sunday, 13 March in-person or online!
The program will feature a conversation between the CSW Chair and UN Women Executive Director, facilitated by the Irish Ambassador; a panel on Feminist Action for Climate Justice; entertainment; and a celebration of NGO CSW/NY’s 50th Anniversary!
The registration fee for the in-person event is a $50 tax-deductible donation. (If you are planning on just joining the livestream, you do not have to register, simply watch the livestream on Youtube here.)
If you are local to the New York area, join us at the historic Apollo Theater for the NGO CSW66 Consultation Day! The event will also be streamed on our Youtube channel. We DO NOT encourage anyone to travel to New York for this event.
We know that a virtual forum space can be overwhelming and is a new experience for many in our community. That’s why we’ve created some tutorial videos to help NGO CSW66 Forum participants navigate the virtual Portal. The following videos are available to view on our Youtube channel now:
With the global mentorship program, our vision is to continue to facilitate the friendship, support and mentorship between generations of gender equality activists. We hope to encourage a mutually supportive learning relationship with youth and experienced advocates and foster an ongoing conversation where together we can create a community and inclusive culture that facilitates the emergence of a strong intergenerational movement of activists for gender equality.
For NGO CSW66, the YLYPs will be hosting two meet-and-greet events for the YLYP community to connect with our Global Mentors. The first will happen in the lead up to CSW66 as part of our Youth Preparation Series for NGO CSW66. The second will take place during the second week of CSW66. We hope these events can be the start of new meaningful mentorships and relationships between activists of all ages and experiences!
