UN-HABITAT launched the brand new Global Youth Help Desk platform: www.globalyouthdesk.org
The help desk is a multimedia interactive platform for young people leading community improvement projects worldwide and those interested in the field. The idea is to foster the exchange of learnings and experiences, and to allow young leaders to engage and collaborate with other youth from across the world.
The Platform brings together different UN-HABITAT programs and is an important step to advance the youth-led development field.
All of those who are interested in UN-HABITAT’s Urban Youth Fund can come and find information about the projects funded, their progress as well as the learning gained by the youth leading them. It also has all the information you need to improve your project idea and boost your project proposal.
The platform is also home for the Urban Youth Research Network, and will allow researchers on urban youth to publish their research and collaborate with other researchers from around the world.
The Global Youth Help Desk was launched by the Norwegian Junior Minister, Mr. Arvinn Eikeland Gadgil during a lively event attended by UN-HABITAT Envoys, the Youth Advisory Board members, governments and other UN-HABITAT officials and is already fully operational!
It’s time for us all to explore the Help Desk and take advantage of this platform!
