13th UNESCO Youth Forum – Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN)

13th UNESCO Youth Forum

From November 13th-15th, UNESCO held its 13th UNESCO Youth Forum under the theme “Social Impacts of Climate Change and the need to achieve an equitable climate transition.” CYEN member and National Coordinator in Barbados, Ms. Shannon Weekes participated in the forum amongst other CYEN members. The forum was an opportunity for 170+ youth delegates from around the world to present recommendations to UNESCO on what youth want and how they can better incorporate youth into their programming activities. The forum also served as an opportunity for youth delegates to network with each other, Youth Ministers and UNESCO staff, learning about how youth are leading initiatives and/or lobbying for policy change in their countries.
