Call for activities to integrate the Programme of the University on Youth and Development 2023

7 June 2023

The University on Youth and Development (UYD) will take place from 17 to 24 September 2023 in Mollina (Spain) on the theme: Young People, Peace and Climate change. Activity proposals are open for submission to the North-South Centre secretariat until 20 June 2023. 

The UYD is an international youth event where a number of youth-led and youth-oriented organisations have the possibility to run their own activities (trainings, seminars, board meetings, etc.) within a dynamic and participatory context which encourages networking, cooperation, and peer-to-peer education.

Since 2000 the UYD represents an international hub for meetings, youth advocacy and exchange of good practices. It gathers, for one week, hundreds of young people, youth workers, decision makers, experts from the field and institutional representatives, providing them all with a space to meet, debate, build their capacities and cooperate on youth policy issues in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals.

The 2023 annual theme is “Young people, peace and climate change”.

The annual theme is the thread that connects all the activities taking place in the framework of the Summer Universities and it will be explored during the plenary sessions engaging every participant of the event.

How to apply ?

Organisations interested to join the 2023 edition should fill in the application form by 20 June 23:00 CET. Please make sure to read carefully through the theme concept and the call for activities to understand the practicalities and commitments by the partners who join the partnership.

Organisations selected to run their activity within the 22nd edition of the UYD will join the partnership and collaborate with many other organisations for the success of the event and for the growth of the youth sector.

Each organisation is responsible for funding and managing its own activity under the conditions specified in the call for activities.
