WYA at HLMY 2011

WYA High-Level Meeting on Youth 2011 from World Youth Alliance on Vimeo.

This past week, WYA attended the UN High-Level Meeting on Youth as part of the International Year of Youth. With young delegates from 19 countries, WYA called for “the focus on basic needs of young people by strengthening and supporting the family”.
For more information about WYA’s stance, see the video above.
“The family is the first place that young people learn not only about their dignity as human beings, but also about mutual understanding in a context where not everyone agrees.” -Rebecca Marchinda, WYA’s Director of Advocacy
