On 18 February the UN Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, Ahmad Alhendawi, in partnership with other UN entities, international NGOs, and youth groups and stakeholders, has launched the online crowdsourcing platform for youth priorities in the post-2015 development agenda. Moderated by both UN agencies and youth organizations, this online crowdsourcing platform allows for the instant interaction between thousands of young people around the world, giving them the opportunity to share their ideas on youth development. The expected outcome of the crowdsourcing initiative is a consolidated list of youth priorities to be shared with Member States for the intergovernmental deliberations.
Ahmad Alhendawi encourages youth constituencies to not only join in the online discussions, but also mobilize their networks to promote the crowdsourcing initiative and help them to build a collective vision for youth in the post-2015 Development Agenda.
