The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) is organizing the 7th UNAOC Global Forum and the Youth Event which will take place on April 26-27, 2016 in Baku, Azerbaijan. All selected youth participants will have access to the Youth Event and Global Forum and will be provided with round-trip international ticket (economy class) to Baku, Azerbaijan and 4 days accommodation.

The UNOAC Global Forum is a major event organized regularly by the UNAOC, bringing together government heads of states and Foreign Ministers, prominent personalities and experts as well as current and potential partners from academia, media, the private sector, youth-led organizations and other civil society organizations. The Forum provides a global platform for discussions on intercultural dialogue and social inclusion. Past Forums have been hosted in Spain, Turkey, Brazil, Qatar, Austria and Indonesia.

The objectives of the Youth Event

  • Support and provide a framework for selected 125-150 young people from diverse backgrounds to meaningfully participate in the UNAOC Global Forum, engage with the Forum theme and subthemes and bring youth voices to the Forum discussions;
  • Engage with UNAOC on the relevance of its activities for young people;
  • Grow selected participants’ network and expand their activities through interaction with other youth involved in social action;
  • Support youth participants’ access to and knowledge of the global youth movement for peace and its network;
  • Promote the SDGs and discuss the role of youth in achieving them by 2030;
  • Facilitate the creation of Narratives of Tomorrow as the main outcome of the Youth Event. These narratives articulate participating youth’s vision and solutions for the world to “live together in inclusive societies” and chart the course for the way forward;
  • Motivate and empower participants to act as agents for social transformation and intercultural dialogue in their communities.

This is a call to youth from around the world wanting to build inclusive societies through understanding and respect among cultural and religious communities

    As a non-prophet organization working for the improvement of orphans’ lives, we have always found it tough to raise funds for Premium membership. Our request is, could we not be considered free access to some funding that would later help us pay Premium membership? Please consider the orphans around the globe.

    • Hi Roy,
      Premium membership is access to our huge donor database; sample proposals that were successful in attracting major donors for their projects which means you can create an effective proposal for your cause and attract relevant donors to make that sustainable; fundraising guides guiding you through approaching the donors, conducting fundraising activities and more; training videos that train you through fundraising activities and strategic planning to make your organization and project sustainable. More you will receive funding alerts in your inbox prior to general users to keep you ahead of rest of the world in approaching relevant donor. These are only few of our features.
      We need huge human resource, technical and time investment in providing the premium members with these services. The premium membership fee we charge is the expenses we make in providing the service. So, we are not able to provide free membership for now.

      Thank you!
