Building peace in the minds of men and women

11th UNESCO Youth Forum – Youth Spaces in Action!

UNESCO Paris, France, 18-19 November 2019

The 11th UNESCO Youth Forum – Youth Spaces in Action took place at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France, on 18 and 19 November 2019, during the 40th session of UNESCO’s General Conference. This Forum encouraged dialogue, experience- and knowledge-sharing, peer learning and cooperation among young change-makers and youth representatives, with UNESCO and its Members States, and with other stakeholders.

Every two years, youth meet at UNESCO’s Headquarters to discuss the challenges we face today falling within UNESCO’s fields of competence.

This year, the Forum was the opportunity to showcase and discuss good practices in youth engagement with UNESCO in the context of the Youth Space Initiative or other projects that youth have developed with the support of the Organization. Therefore, the youth participants were only nominated by UNESCO structures.
