The YCSRR has been selected as one of the youth lead organization leaders in the UN Action Coalitions, on the theme: Body Autonomy and Sexual and Reproductive Rights. We are partnering with IWHC at the Action Coalition to push for action on universal CSE. As Youth Coalition, our work has been to revise and input on the drafting and discussion of the Action Coalition blueprints which will be released in the Generation Equality Forum to be held in Mexico from 29-31 of March. During this process YC also participated in the creation of the Young Feminist Manifesto which highlights young leader’s needs and necessities in order to participate meaningfully of this process.
#YouthForCSE is a digital advocacy campaign that centers youth voices in the discourse around Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) from April to June 2021, in conjunction with the Generation Equality Action Coalitions in Mexico City & Paris.
Young people must be at the center of CSE because a human centred approach that prioritizes the lived realities of young people is the most effective way of realising young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights
The hashtag #YouthForCSE will feature the voices of diverse young people from across the globe, talking about what CSE means to them, why they think it is necessary, and their demands to decision makers. We must listen to young people in the conversation around CSE because it directly affects their lives!
Follow YC’s Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages for short videos by young people talking about what CSE means to them. We are engaging with young people through different mediums, from videos, to Facebook Lives and Instagram takeovers. Tune in!
On 24th June 2021, we are hosting a Twitter chat where we want young people from all over the world to tweet why CSE is important to them with the hashtag #YouthForCSE. It will be a global call for policymakers to know young people’s demands in the lead up to the Paris Forum. If you are a young person and want to participate, head to YC’s Twitter account on 24th June 2021! Click here to add a reminder in your Google Calendar!
