Youth Forum 

“The vision of the GDPA Youth Forum is to be the voice of young people. 

Young people are equal citizens and are encouraged and supported to achieve their fullest potential as global citizens.”

We believe the youth forum is the tool through which we empower, encourage, involve, represent, reach out and support young people

The Youth Forum works to empower young people to participate actively in society to improve their own lives by representing and advocating their needs and interest and those of their Community. Young people are the powerful catalysts for positive change and contributors of innovative solutions to problem.

To overcome the challenges faced by young people, the Youth Forum has three main goals:

Greater youth participation

Stronger youth organisations

Increased youth autonomy and inclusion

With these goals in mind, the Youth Forum will continue its advocacy work to become an agenda-setter on youth affairs, empower members to maximise the impact of their expertise and enforce a rights-based approach in all that it does.
