Youth Multistakeholder Meeting in Alignment with HLPEP Consultation on Post-2015 Development Agenda, Nusa Dua, Bali Indonesia
Position Description: Youth Delegate
As the end of Millennium Development Goals (MDG) is just around the corner (2015), it is imperative that young people play a progressive role in holding multilevel stakeholders accountable to their commitments and obligations in poverty alleviation.
In alignment with the upcoming High Level Panel of Eminent Persons (HLPEP) chaired by President Yudhoyono of Indonesia, President Sirleaf of Liberia and Prime Minister Cameron of the UK that takes place in Bali, youth working group envisions to further utilize the parallel stakeholders meeting to facilitate the input of young people into discussions around ‘Global Partnerships and Means of Implementation’ for the post-2015 framework, the theme of the 4th meeting of the HLPEP. The upcoming meeting is a pivotal event for the youth constituency as it will shape the future of the development agenda and its effectiveness in addressing the issues that disproportionately affect young people such as health, comprehensive education, access to decent employment, ecological conservation and economic inclusion.
We are eager to welcome young people across the globe to join us at this meeting and we are looking for bright and passionate young people to come to Bali as youth delegates. Youth delegates will come to represent various groups as well as regions around the world and will convene in Nusa Dua, Bali from March 24th to 25th 2013. Youth delegates will be given the opportunity to debate, discuss and champion with high-level decision makers on what a post-2015 development agenda should look like, how it should be implemented and how youth voices are well integrated into the process.
