The “National Youth Conference 2019” promises to make youths aware of the current scenario of opportunities in their country by addressing them in five major thematic areas; Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Youth Leadership, 50 under 50 (Gender Equality), Youth Entrepreneurship, and Tourism (Visit Nepal 2020).
The National Youth Conferences in the past years has created history by providing correct guidelines to the youths, facilitating them with enough knowledge and networks, nurturing leadership qualities in them in order to start entrepreneurship. Additionally, Nepal Youth Council has been notably practicing gender equality and sticks its importance in the mind of youths from time to time as both the parties carry an equal part for the prosperity of the nation.
Today, youths comprise 40% of the world’s population. This is a sizable number that holds promise for driving the economic development of the country as they represent a vital resource for the transformation of any nation. In Nepal, out of the total population of more than 29 million, youths between the ages of 16 - 40 constitute 40%.
Nevertheless, half of the youth population is either unemployed or underemployed. In twenty years’ time, they will become old. In recognition of the fact that they play determining roles and to bring that undeniably effective force into the mainstream of development in Nepal, the Nepal Youth Council (NYC) is proposing to host a three-day National Youth Conference 2019 from 10-12 August 2019.
Outputs of the Conference:
In total, 204 participants will attend the Conference. 144 youths (one female and one male) from 77 districts will be eligible to participate in the Conference. Additionally, 50 youths (gender balanced) will be selected from among the differently-abled, Dalits, diverse ethnic groups and LGBTQ.
