How to Become a Youth Delegate

The United Nations General Assembly has recommended that Member States should include a youth representative in their delegations – and with the support of an organization like a national youth council, it’s quite possible that a campaign will be successful.

The Road to becoming a Youth Representative:

Step 1. Write to the Head of IIMSAM, outline the merits of youth delegates, and offer to meet to discuss it further.

Step 2. You might also try to get letters of endorsement from all of the above, plus key civil society leaders, both national and international.

Step 3. After the proposal has been accepted, and a nomination and selection procedure established by our Committee, the next step would be to apply for the position.

Priority areas

Each of the Ten Priority Areas identified by the International Community is presented in terms of principal issues, specific objectives, and the actions proposed to be taken by various actors to achieve those objectives. Objectives and actions reflect the three themes of International Youth Year: Participation, Development, and Peace; they are interlinked and mutually reinforcing.

The ten fields of action identified by the International Community are education, employment, hunger and poverty, health, environment, drug abuse, juvenile delinquency, leisure-time activities, girls and young women and the full and effective participation of youth in the life of society and in decision-making. The Programme of Action does not exclude the possibility of new priorities which may be identified in the future.

Implementation of the Programme of Action requires the full enjoyment by young people of all human rights and fundamental freedoms, and also requires that Governments take effective action against violations of these rights and freedoms and promote non-discrimination, tolerance, respect for diversity, with full respect for various religious and ethical values, cultural backgrounds and philosophical convictions of their young people, equality of opportunity, solidarity, security and participation of all young women and men.
