United Nations Development Programme MENA Region Youth Futures Fellowship

United Nations Development Programme MENA

United Nations Development Programme MENA Region Youth Futures Fellowship, via Afrokonnect. Applications are open for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Youth Futures Fellowship.

The UNDP is inviting youth from the Arab States region on a journey into the future. How will young people be participating and engaging with their communities? How will communities be reacting to and taking action on the climate crisis?

Designed as a collaborative learning journey to develop and enhance the futures thinking skills of youth across the region, the UNDP Youth Futures Fellowship will not only focus on tools and methods but also how to use and apply these approaches within your own community and toward challenges and opportunities that are important to you.

Amplifying youth voices and aspirations, they will explore different futures and look at cases and examples from the region and around the world. In the process, you will engage directly with a global group of experts. Recommended: 10 Best universities in Canada for international students
