Opportunity: 6 #Gender Equality #Youth Advocates needed at #UNGA72

Restless Development is collaborating with the Permanent Mission of Denmark to the United Nations to help embed youth-led accountability at the heart of the 2030 Agenda. To do this, among other things, we will be jointly implementing a high-level side event that showcases how young people are already engaging formally and informally in the follow-up and review of the SDGs, specifically looking at Goal 5 and tackling gender inequality.

For this year’s high level opening of the general debate of the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Restless Development and the Permanent Mission of Denmark to the UN are jointly recruiting six youth advocates to attend the General Assembly high-level week, taking place in New York from Tuesday 19th – Saturday 23rd September 2017.

We are looking to support six young people with a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences in youth-led monitoring and accountability for sustainable development as well as fighting for gender equality. Please see the below application form for a full list of  criteria, and we will be ensuring that the group of youth advocates attending the UNGA reflects our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Preference will be given to young people who have experience at the grassroots and national levels on tackling gender inequality in all its forms, as well as those young people from countries that have committed Voluntary National Reviews at the UN High Level Political Forum in 2017 or will be conducting a review in 2018. Please see here for more detail regarding those countries who have conducted a Voluntary National Review https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/hlpf

If you are interested in being a Youth Advocate for Restless Development and the Permanent Mission of Denmark, please fill out the below application form before the deadline of Thursday 3rd August at 9pm BST. We will not unfortunately be able to consider applicants who have submitted forms after this time.
