The Global Forum is open to you! 

 

If you can organize a public event in your community to raise attention to adolescent well-being and deepen public support, we will award you official Global Forum for Adolescents affiliation status and support you with a comprehensive package of evidence and messages, knowledge and information, branding, material and merchandise to raise your voice for and with young people. All creative ideas for your events are welcome – school and club viewing parties, social media events, symposiums, public debates, poetry, music and art events, uplighting public buildings in the 1.8 Billion campaign colours, and more! 

 

Also, if you would like to partner with other organizations to sponsor a national-level or regional event, we can help you too. PMNCH, the convenor of the Global Forum and the world’s largest alliance for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health, has more than 1,400 member-organizations in 120+ countries, and can bring together like-minded partners across 10 different constituency groups – from adolescent and youth networks to private sector to donors and governments.  

 

All affiliated events with the Global Forum for Adolescents will be publicized through a global online platform for the #1point8 campaign. Selected videos and photos from national and regional events will be spotlighted within the global mainstage programme of the Global Forum for Adolescents during 11-12 October.  

 

Together, adolescents and young people are an unstoppable force: let’s seize the moment of the Global Forum for Adolescents to raise our voice and be heard at the highest levels!
