Now open: Nominations for Future Policy Award

The World Future Council, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), with the support of the Office of the UN Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth, the International Labour Organization (ILO) and Youth Policy Labs kick off a global call for nominations to identify and honour the world’s most successful policies enabling youth empowerment.

When : 8 April 2019 - 31 May 2019
Where : Worldwide
Every year, the most visionary policies tackling humankind’s most pressing challenges are celebrated through the Future Policy Award (FPA), the only global award that recognises policies for the benefit of present and future generations. The World Future Council has awarded this annual prize since 2010 in partnership with UN agencies and the IPU. The topic of Future Policy Award 2019 is youth empowerment, which is critical to achieve the Agenda 2030 and address key sustainable development and justice challenges.

The award will highlight policies that advance the economic empowerment of young people in decent and sustainable jobs, for instance, youth skills development programmes that pave the way for youth to build the green economy we need. It also seeks to identify youth entrepreneurship or programmes targeting marginalized groups, including women, as well as policy and legislative frameworks that enable more civic engagement and political participation of youth.

The nominations are open until the 31st May. For further information click on the link below.
