Apply to Join the Technical Working Group for the development of a Consensus Statement on Youth-led Accountability 
Publication Date: 08/05/2019

Restless Development and UNFPA, with the support of the partners of the Youth Collective for Gender  Equality are creating a technical working group consisting of gender diverse young people to input to  the development of Consensus Statement on Youth-led Accountability (Consensus Statement).    

The objectives of this Consensus Statement will be:  

  •  To gain consensus for a common understanding and definition of youth-led accountability
  • To link with supporting documents to enable key partners and stakeholders to institute work  on youth-led accountability
  • To mobilize support from governments, multi-laterals, civil society and youth-led  organizations for the uptake of youth-led accountability across processes, including, but not  limited to the SDGs    

The Consensus Statement will be formally launched at the ​Nairobi Summit ​in Nairobi, Kenya in  November 2019.    

 

The Youth Collective for Gender Equality    

The Youth Collective for Gender Equality is a group of youth-led and youth-serving organizations, UN  agencies and Member States working together to advance gender equality, SRHR and youth-led  accountability.

Please note that participation in the technical working group will be voluntary. There may be an  opportunity for one or several members of the panel to receive funding to participate in the Nairobi  Summit in November to launch the report.      

We strongly welcome applications from all sectors of the youth community. No applicant will receive  less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, sexual orientation, marital status, social status,  caste, race, ethnic origin, religious belief, age, HIV status, disability, or any other factor that cannot be  shown to be relevant to performance.
