NGO Youth Representatives on the UN Intranet

In an effort to capitalize on youth activism and attract more young people to the work of the United Nations, the DPI NGO Relations Section introduced in 2010 the concept of the NGO Youth Representative. Their response to our suggestion was immediate and encouraging. Scores of Youth Representatives came on board.Capture

Following the successful launch of its Youth Representative initiative, the DPI/NGO Relations expanded its programme by offering DPI NGO Youth Representatives the opportunity to meet monthly in order to discuss and chart activities for their peers. The Representatives moved into virtual communications by creating a closed Facebook page where the young people could regularly exchange ideas with each other.
