The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC), the International Youth Council (IYC) and the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation (FAF) have partnered up to hold an online consultation regarding the 3 themes of the upcoming UNAOC’s 4th Annual Forum to be held in Doha, Qatar this December.

This 4th UNAOC Forum in Qatar will bring together over 2,000 participants, including political and corporate leaders, civil society activists, youth organizations, faith communities, research centers, foundations and journalists, will come together to agree on joint actions to improve relations across cultures, combat prejudice and build lasting peace.
The 3 themes of this 4th UNAOC Forum are:
• Theme 1: How Does Cultural Diversity Matter to Development? The missing link
• Theme 2: Promoting Trust and Tolerance to Advance Development Goals
• Theme 3: New Strategies for Intercultural Dialogue, Understanding & Cooperation
We are inviting youth partners from all around the world to share their viewpoints on these 3 themes from November 10 to November 30, 2011, on the “Community” section of the UNAOC Youth Website at www.unaocyouth.org. Please note that you need to register on the UNAOC Youth Website before posting any comment.
For each of these three themes, a panel of youth leaders and academics developed three specific sub-questions. The goal for the consultation regarding these nine questions is to yield concrete, focused and pertinent recommendations for the Youth Event at the Doha Forum. For each question, you can count on the support of two youth co-moderators chosen through an application process. These youth co-moderators will be easily identifiable on the UNAOC Youth Website.
The most helpful and poignant viewpoints from this consultation process will be shared with the youth participants who will then interact directly with world leaders at the Doha Forum.
We want to work with you in ensuring that the voices and viewpoint of youth partners around the world be noted and heard at the Doha Forum! We look forward to hearing from you before November 30 on the Community section of the UNAOC Youth Website at www.unaocyouth.org/community!
For more information about this on-line consultation, please contact Isabelle Legare, Youth Program Manager for the UNAOC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
