Share with us your follow-up actions to the 8th UNESCO Youth Forum

Every two years, UNESCO organizes a Youth Forum. On the occasion of the 8th UNESCO Youth Forum, around 500 young participants from all over the world gathered at the Organization’s Headquarters in Paris, from 29 to 31 October 2013, to exchange views, share experiences, reflect together and, above all, identify common preoccupations and possible solutions.

Before and during the Forum, young women and men defined a set of strategic recommendations - the recommendations of the 8th UNESCO Youth Forum.

UNESCO has launched a survey to take stock of initiatives undertaken in the follow-up to these recommendations.

The survey is open to the Forum’s young participants, public authorities, youth organizations and other partners working in the field of youth, and is available at:

The survey will be open until Monday 12 January 2015.

Any initiatives that have been started or completed from the 8th Forum in October 2013 to this day can be shared with us.

Through the survey, UNESCO would like to show that the recommendations of young women and men from about 150 countries across the world have been heard. Inputs will also help UNESCO and youth participants to better shape recommendations for future editions of the Forum.
