CSW64 Youth Dialogue

Feb 19, 2020

The 64th session of the Commission on the Status of Women will focus on the global review and appraisal of the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and the outcomes of the twenty-third special session of the General Assembly. 

Mirroring this focus, the CSW64 Youth Dialogue will take place on March 9, 2020, from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM EST and will serve as the “Youth Global Review of the Beijing Platform for Action”. It will offer a platform for young people to exercise their leadership, identify key issues affecting them, and strategize on how to impact the deliberations of CSW64 and the Generation Equality Forum. 

The CSW64 Youth Dialogue will host 100 young people. If you are interested in attending, please apply here before February 23, 2020 11:00 PM EST. Participants will be selected against a set of publicly available selection criteria and successful participants will be notified on their selection in the beginning of March. The event is open only to young people aged 14–30, and minors must be accompanied by a chaperone.
