Pre-APFSD 2019 Youth Forum Statement: Empowering Young People and Ensuring Inclusivity and Equality in the Asia Pacific

APFSDYouth2019 Call to Action

On 21-23 March,  youth advocates and youth-serving organisations from the region convened in Bangkok for the Pre-APFSD 2019 Youth Forum, which continues the discussion from last year’s Youth Forum, focusing on the implementation of the Agenda 2030 in Asia-Pacific. This call to action echoes the voices, concerns and demands which were discussed over three days. While acknowledging that there have been some developments by countries in the Asia and the Pacific to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the recommendations presented in this call address the key gaps that leave out young people from the overall progress and neglects their needs.
