Youth plenary / Plénière des jeunes
More than half of the world’s population is under the age of 25. Youth are passionate, energetic, and powerful, and will inherit the world, including the challenges that come with it. Issues that affect youth – education, the prevention of teenage pregnancy, gender equity and employment, to name a few – deserve the attention of leaders, policy-makers, researchers, and advocates of all ages.
This youth plenary session will focus on diversity in family planning. When we talk about diversity, we must talk about unity. Unity among us all to work together and to work with groups that we don’t normally work with to further our efforts. The plenary, which will be non-traditional and include monologues and interactive elements, will focused on diversity in family planning and highlight both the lived realities of youth from all over the world as well as programs that have successfully integrated diversity in family planning. Monologues will be interspersed with visuals focused on emphasizing the data which reinforce the stories or highlight solutions in different regions.
