Web platform launched for youth participation in the preparation of the 2013 World Youth Report

arton4207.pngThe United NationsFocal Point on Youthhas enabled a web platform so young people may contribute to the 2013World Youth Reportthrough an interactive process of consultations, where they can share their perspectives on how migration has affected them. The report will offer a multidimensional outlook on the concerns, challenges and successes experienced by young migrants and other young people affected by migration, including second generation migrants, return migrants, and young people left behind by migrant parents.

The United Nations Department for Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) is extending an invitation to young people aged between 15 to 35 years and youth-led organizations to participate in the interactive activities which include: an online survey, an e-consultation, a Google+ Hangout with young people and experts, and opportunities to contribute paintings, photographs, and animations. These activities commenced 23 January and run until 22 February 2013, and will ensure that theWorld Youth Reportincludes a focus on young migrants from their own perspectives, based on their own experience, and in their own voices.
