WAGGGS at World Conference on Youth 2014
Young people from all around the world will come together and discuss priorities for youth in the Post-2015 agenda. This conference aims to bring together young women and young men from all over the world with a special focus on under-represented youth in the current agenda (the Millennium Development Goals) with a gender and regional balance. This years' World Conference on Youth is especially unique in the fact that it is the first time governments and young people will aim to negotiate a joint outcome document.
10 of the 350 international participants selected are Girl Guides or Girl Scouts so WAGGGS has brought them together to speak as one voice. A small number of the national participants are also members of Sri Lankan Girl Guides.

WAGGGS priority areas are outlined in this 'all you need to know' document, and a flyer for our parallel event: 'The World We Want for Girls Beyond 2015' on the afternoon of Thursday 8th May can be found here.
