New cycle of the Network of Universities on Youth and Global Citizenship

 

17th University on Youth and Development[07-03-2017] Do you want to be part of the Network of Universities on Youth and Global Citizenship in 2017, organised by the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe in partnership with various organisations? We invite youth-led and youth-serving organisations to join us for the two main events of this year’s cycle under the topic “Developing Global Identities”:

- The 5th Mediterranean University on Youth and Global Citizenship (MedUni) to be held in the Centre de Loisirs et Vacances pour les Enfants in Tunisia (Hammamet) from the 3rd to the 9th July 2017;

- The 18th University on Youth and Development (UYD) to be held in the CEULAJ in Spain (Mollina) from the 17th to the 23rd September 2017.

Created in 2011 and based on the idea of global citizenship and identity, the different Universities have become a meeting point for young people and youth workers to come together as part of a global youth movement that works for more sustainable and inclusive societies. The educational model developed in these Universities is largely inspired by the Global Education Guidelines, systematized by the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe, and by Council of Europe’s Recommendation on Education for Global Interdependence and Solidarity.

The Network provides an exceptional space for young people and youth organisations to meet, debate, build their capacities and co-operate on youth policy related issues. The Universities are committed to further strengthening youth cooperation through a permanent dialogue between youth organisations and youth-related institutions at regional, multilateral and global level, contributing to the Global Youth Partnership for Development.

This year’s theme would allow participants and political representatives to reflect on how youth organisations and youth work can empower young people as global citizens to celebrate their diverse identities, face their vulnerabilities and unleash their potential to contribute to the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the UN Global Agenda 2030.
