The UNYAP team is excited to share the 5th edition of our newsletter. December was a wonderful month for us to review the previous year and plan for the coming one. Check out the updates for this month down below.
In the new year, the UNYAP team is excited to cooperate with various civil society organizations on a wider scale. Focusing on inclusivity and other important areas, we are fully energized to make many effective changes on our own and participate meaningfully in the new year of 2023. Please refer to our action plan for 2023-2024.
Updates on the Global Goals for Youth Program
The GGYP cohorts have successfully wrapped up in December 2022. We are confident that through Public speaking, Powerpoint workshops, Decent work for youth, and lastly the Year Compass sessions, the cohorts were able to improve their communication skills and find more assurance in their capabilities.
The UN agencies in Mongolia organized the UN tour for the UNYAP team, which allowed us to get to know the values and activities of the United Nations in Mongolia more closely. We take this opportunity to thank each agency for devoting their precious time to us. Though short, the meetings have unraveled many ideas and potential opportunities for us.
Youth retreat with the Youth Working Group and the UNFPA
One of the main goals of being the voice of youth to the UN is to bring the UN activities closer to young people and to convey youth voices and interests to the UN agencies.
In the meeting, we went over our next year’s activities and discussed the work plan and how this would tie in with the priorities of the Youth 2030 Strategy. At the youth retreat meeting of the UNFPA, our members presented a “Needs of Generation Z” speech at the UNFPA youth retreat meeting. It was a great pleasure to participate from our side.
2022 was a year of many successful projects and events. With this energy, we bring youth participation to a decision-making level in the coming year.
