The CIVICUS Youth Action Team 2023 accepts applications now. The CIVICUS Youth Action Team wants to increase its efforts in 2023–2024 to better connect with the over 4,000 CIVICUS Youth members as a whole.
The CIVICUS Youth Action Team is a group of CIVICUS voting members who are led by young people and who advocate for the inclusion of young people in all alliance structures, governance, strategies, and initiatives. Yet it goes further.
The Youth Action Team views civic space as the last frontier and wants to make sure that young people have the resources necessary to participate fully in it. As a place for co-creation and designing innovative projects, the YAT sets its own agenda and work plan to make sure they develop projects in the areas that are currently more critical for young activists, social innovators and human right defenders.
