Report: 1st Global Forum on Youth Policies

December 8, 2015

On 28-30 October 2014, the First Global Forum on Youth Policies took place in Baku, Azerbaijan. The Forum brought together a broad diversity of youth policy leaders, experts and professionals to address 2 key questions: What can we learn from the past 20 years of youth policy practice? What can - and must - be done to improve public policies for young people? The 700 participants included ministers and directors, activists and volunteers, researchers and young politicians - to name just a few of the occupational profiles in the youth sector - who discussed, engaged, explored and shaped youth policy in the interactive setting of the Forum.


This report has been jointly prepared by Youth Policy Labs, with contributions from all co-conveners: the Office of the Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth (OSGEY), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Council of Europe (COE), with the support of the Ministry of Youth and Sports in the Republic of Azerbaijan.
