The Commonwealth Youth Gender and Equality Forum

The forum will be a five-day residential programme which will bring together young professionals and experts in an inter-generational learning environment for the purpose of capacity-building the group. This will occur through workshops, discussions and training sessions. The interaction will aim to develop knowledge in a range of areas, including on various gender issues, on effective advocacy, and on further practical skills. Themes covered will include child marriage, harmful practices, domestic violence, sexual violence, access to education, economic empowerment, entrepreneurship, leadership, STEM, LGBT rights and sexual and reproductive health and rights. The workshops and discussions will be facilitated by trainers and experts, and will serve as a space to share knowledge and experience, as well as capacity-building the participants to be able to understand the issues more clearly in their global context, gain a greater idea of the ways in which they can effectively affect policy changes, and advocate more effectively at key moments, particularly within Commonwealth structures.
