Green Crescent Brings the World Youth Together!

With the novel global youth project, the Green Crescent brings together the youth from various cultures, religions, languages, races and nationalities from all over the world with the aim of preventing addictions, promoting healthy living, and developing their advocacy skills. The "Youth Advocacy Forum", which was established as a platform where global policies will be discussed and local and international advocacy agendas will be developed, will offer important opportunities for youth across the globe to take joint action against addictions every year.

Powerful organizations such as the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Istanbul Initiative will support the forum organized by the International Federation of Green Crescent. The forum will be held online on 24-25-26 August 2020, and over 40 selected youth between the ages 18-22 from 6 regions of the world (Africa, America, Asia, Europe, Western Pacific and South East Asia regions) will participate in the forum.
Contributing to the development of youth from various cultures and geographies of the world, the forum aims to enable youth to gain knowledge in the field of critical thinking and advocacy and to gain competence in these areas with ongoing trainings, within the scope of the training of national and international speakers who are experts in their fields.
