WYA Delegation to ICPD+25
November 12 - November 14
W>hile observing the 1999 Conference on Population and Development(ICPD+5), Anna Halpine witnessed a group of thirty-two young people make a statement. Claiming to represent all three billion of the world’s youth, they demanded that the following policies be put into place: abortion as a human right, sexual rights for children; and the deletion of parental rights.
The group of young people characterized these as necessary for development but ignored basic needs such as clean water, education, and employment. This spurred Anna to action. With human dignity as her focus, Anna called on delegates to discuss topics addressing basic human needs and rights. 20 years later the International Conference on Population and Development(ICPD+25) is coming to Nairobi Kenya.
