Young Parliamentarians

Young leaders are key to driving transformative social change. This session shines a light on youth participation in political systems and notes that Young Parliamentarians have a key role to play in advancing the ICPD agenda. This session will take an intergenerational and interactive approach and will foster dialogue among parliamentarians of a range of ages while soliciting feedback and questions from attendees. The aim is to identify lessons learned that can advance all parts of the ICPD agenda in sub-national, national and global financing frameworks. The young politicians will also share ideas on how they can shape opportunities for the advancement of sexual and reproductive health within their mandate. Expect young parliamentarians to make concrete, life-changing commitments that can be enacted through parliamentary policy and fiscal and oversight instruments. The event will be convened by UNFPA in collaboration with the Global Parliamentary Alliance (GPA), an initiative of the European Parliamentary Forum for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (EPF), the World Health Organization and IPU.
