Accountability Lab and the Government of Korea are looking for young people (ages 18-35) from OGP countries to apply for the 2021 Open Government Partnership Summit’s International Youth Delegation. Delegates will participate in a 3-day virtual open government bootcamp. With the help of high-level government and civil society representatives, they will develop their ideas and share their recommendations around youth inclusion in open government processes. During the OGP Summit itself, the youth delegation will present policy proposals, join and speak on panels, and network with other changemakers. As part of this process we are developing a youth toolkit to pilot as a resource with national/sub-national entities going forwards- so the ideal candidates would be from a CSO in a country that may be developing a new action plan and which may have a youth/inclusion commitment or focus.
Therefore, we encourage you or young people you might know to apply for the youth delegation by the end of the day this Wednesday, Nov 3rd (the application is very short and easy).
If you have any questions, check out the FAQ document or email firstname.lastname@example.org; otherwise, please submit your application for a chance to collaborate with open government activists around the world.
Thank you so much for spreading the word.
