 Introduction


Many young people in the East Asia and Pacific (EAP) region have become interested and actively engaged in the world development process, and some are continuously making efforts to have their voices heard when policies are considered that affect them. The objectives of this seminar is to support those efforts.

This seminar will bring together youth leaders, Bank staff, and policy-makers from the region, to discuss development programs initiated by youth. The seminar will also explore the potential for increasing youth participation in the decision-making process at national levels. 

The focus of this seminar is in line with the key message of the World Development Report 2007: Development and the Next Generation, which emphasizes youth as partners in the development agenda. By acknowledging the efforts of youth and their potential as effective partners, this seminar should serve as first step toward the creation of a more permanent dialogue between youth, the Bank, and national policy-makers on issues of mutual concern relating to international development.

 Seminar


This seminar is the first of two that will be implemented. Supported by the key writers of the World Development Report and the Bank's youth focal points in each participating country, the seminar will  include presentations by selected youth who have had the opportunity to work in development projects or participate in organizations with strong involvement in  their respective country's development agenda. The seminar will seek to stimulate discussion and dialogue among the participants with the goal of finding ways for youth to become more engaged in development issues. World Bank specialists will also participate.

Seminar two (scheduled for June 2007) will focus on increasing youth participation in the decision-making process at the national level, inviting key policy-makers to the session.
