9. Youth and the World

Last update: 23 July 2021

The main actor involved in youth’s contribution to global processes of policy-making, implementation and follow-up is the Youth Council. This is an advisory body recognised and funded by the Youth Department of the French-speaking Community. Others actors have an important role in raising youth awareness about global issues such as the International Youth Office, youth associations or schools.

The Youth Forum has an important role to play by sending youth delegates at the UN conferences and meetings every two years. Youth associations and the International Youth Office also raise youth awareness about global issues by supporting specific youth projects in Belgium and abroad.
