CSW61 Youth Forum Social Media Toolkit

The Youth Forum at the 61st Session on Commission on Status of Women (CSW 61) is a critical opportunity for young people and adolescents in all their diversities to:

  • Convene in advance of the official opening of CSW
  • Raise their voices and amplify common concerns and advocacy efforts.

It is a safe space for young people, particularly young women and girls, to openly, and strategically discuss the challenges and opportunities in their local, national, regional and global contexts, in accelerating progress to achieve gender equality and sustainable development.

This coming 11-12 March, join the conversation and make your voice count!
