YBI to speak at Commonwealth Ministerial Conference in July

YBI will be presenting a paper on the YouthBank model at the Commonwealth Ministerial Conference, Kampala, Uganda, later this month. The event will focus on resourcing and financing youth development. This will be a great opportunity to influence youth work practice in the context of the recent adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals and to reach the furthest behind first.

Extract from the Commonwealth news: "The Commonwealth Youth Ministers Meeting to be hosted by the Government of Uganda will 'set the pace for the development of young people.'

Uganda’s Minister for Youth, Mrs Nakiwala Florence Kiyingi, gave this assessment as she led a national delegation to the Commonwealth Secretariat in London to discuss preparations for the intergovernmental conference.

The 9th Commonwealth Youth Ministers Meeting (9CYMM) will bring together government ministers and senior officials, young leaders, youth workers and other stakeholders from Commonwealth member countries and beyond in Kampala from 31 July to 4 August 2017."
