Young Leaders Forum is hosting Youth Forum of the High Level Democracy Meeting of the Community of Democracies

As the outgoing Chair of the Community of Democracies, Lithuania this summer will host a number of international events dedicated to the promotion of democracy.

In cooperation with the Lithuanian Presidency of the Community of Democracies, the Young Leaders Forum, in partnership with the Institute of Democratic Politics, the Atlantic Council of the United States, and the World Youth Movement for Democracy will convene a group of leading young activists, democracy practitioners, and diplomats from around the world to discuss their experiences supporting democracy, share best practices, and propose recommendations for how the CoD can strengthen youth engagement in support of democracy.

Over the course of two days (June 29-30), young activists will take part in a special series of thematic panels focused on democratic trends around the world, as well as workshops on new generation democracy tactics. During these discussions, young leaders from a broad spectrum of civic and governmental sectors will present their experiences as panelists, alongside more seasoned policymakers and activists.

This event will be a unique opportunity to foster youth engagement in the Community of Democracies, and build ties among a leading group of youth civic and governmental leaders who are committed to fostering democratization around the world.

The program of Youth Forum “Young Leaders in Support for Democracy: Challenges and Possibilities” as part of the ministerial meeting of the Community of Democracies can be viewed here: http://www.vilnius2011.mfa.lt/index.php?880000254
