UNESCO is organizing the East Asia Youth Consultation (EAYC) which will take place in Beijing, China, 22-24 August 2017. The Consultation is aimed at developing lasting relationships between exceptional youth and identifying ways in which UNESCO can support youth actions.

Approximately 75 youth primarily from East Asian countries are expected to participate in the Consultation. Invitations will be extended to 15 young persons from each country (China, Japan, Mongolia, and the ROK) who previously participated in UNESCO youth events organized in Bali, Changsha, Chengdu, Quanzhou, Ulaanbaatar, and the UNESCO Youth Forum in Paris to attend the consultation.

An additional 15 youth representatives from outside the Beijing Cluster Countries and who are leading youth initiatives in their region will also be invited.

Participants will be expected to discuss with youth in their communities and national youth organizations how they would like to collaborate with UNESCO, and how UNESCO can support their youth activities.
