UNESCO Nigeria 2020 Call for Submission/Nomination of Stories of African Youth-Led Organizations

UNESCO Multisectoral Regional Office Abuja in partnership with the Pan-African Youth Network for a Culture of Peace (PAYNCoP), and the Center for Youth Advocacy and Development (CEYAD) invites African youth organizations to submit original and innovative experiences that document impactful youth engagements spanning across development pillars that have and/or are currently transforming the trajectory of African youths at the local, regional and global level.

Public narrative is an art of storytelling, which UNESCO and its partners recognize as a powerful tool to communicate activities, outcomes and results. This tool will create a platform for most youth engagements, especially those that occur at the local level, facing difficulties in gaining visibility and contributing to the compendium of impacts championed by African youths for significant change on the continent.

This initiative aims to highlight and amplify the work of youth organizations that have and/or are in the process of deepening youth engagement, to encourage the engagement of young people as key actors in the development of their communities.
