We have been shortlisted to join the Global Partnership for Youth in the Post-2015 Development Agenda (GPY2015)

The objective of this partnership is to ensure that young people are actively participating in setting, implementing, and evaluating the new development agenda due to replace Youth2015DevAgendathe MDGs in 2015. This partnership offers a unique platform for all stakeholders working on youth development to express their views, and help identify specific targets and indicators for youth empowerment, which could feature in the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Under the five thematic areas that emerged as top priorities for young people in the My World 2015 survey-Education, Employment and Entrepreneurship, Health, Good Governance, and Peace and Stability- young people are crowdsourcing their recommendations to policy makers. The online crowdsourcing platform is being moderated by both UN agencies and youth organizations, and will allow for instant interaction between thousands of young people from around the world-complimented by a series of offline events. The expected outcome is a consolidated list of youth priorities to be shared with Member States for the intergovernmental deliberations at the ECOSOC Youth Forum.

Our collective task in the partnership is to allow young people and youth development actors to sharpen youth priorities using the crowdsourcing platform.

The crowdsourcing offers a platform for thousands of youth and youth-development actors from around the world to help identify and formulate concrete youth priorities to be proposed in the post-2015 development framework as it pertains to youth

Under the five thematic areas Education; Employment and Entrepreneurship; Health; Good Governance; and Peace and Stability, the platform offers a virtual space for young people to express their priorities and how these can be reflected in the design and implementation of the post-2015 development agenda.

We look forward to building a close working relationship with this iniciative in the scope of young employment and in the hope of moving up, together, The International Campaign for the Youth Employment Decade.
