About the Commonwealth Youth Forum:
The Commonwealth Youth Forum, hosted by the UK Government, and co-organised with the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Commonwealth Youth Council, is one of the four fora preceding the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in April 2018 to help set the agenda for the meeting between Heads of Government.
The event brings together 500 exceptional youth leaders from across the Commonwealth to exchange ideas and share experiences, build skills and networks, identify the most vital challenges and opportunities facing young people today, and make recommendations to decision-makers at the highest level.
The theme for the 2018 Commonwealth Youth Forum is “Powering our Common Future”. Following closely the main CHOGM theme of “Towards a Common Future”, this Youth Forum will aim to challenge and promote the role of the Commonwealth in working toward a common future and delivering a more prosperous, secure, sustainable and fairer future for all its citizens particularly its young people. The outcome document from the Forum will feature concrete policy proposals which can be readily adopted by the National Youth Councils, Commonwealth countries themselves, or by the Commonwealth.
Successful applicants should:
Be a recognised member of a national youth-led body, or represent a youth organisation or special interest group (such as indigenous young people, young people with disabilities, rural youth, young people from diaspora communities, etc.)
Demonstrate an interest in global and Commonwealth issues and working with other young people towards the success of local, regional youth organisations, as well as the Commonwealth Youth Council and its continuation.
Be committed to working in their respective countries with youth leaders, young people, youth organisations and special interest group as part of the preparatory work prior to attending and after the forum. This includes disseminating learnings and engaging with the Commonwealth Youth Council and other stakeholders to assist implement outcomes from the forum.
Be dedicated to strengthening dialogue between young people of the Commonwealth.
Successful applicants will be responsible for organising and paying for their own flights to the UK and organising and paying for their accommodation, meals and on-ground travel for the duration of the Commonwealth Youth Forum. Successful candidates must also hold a valid passport and obtain a visa for entry to the country. Visas must be obtained before departure.
