Youth in Power - Joint Youth Strategy for SRHR in Europe and Central Asia

We are glad to present the outcome of the “Youth in Power” project – a Joint Youth Strategy for sexual and reproductive rights in Europe and Central Asia, developed by youth advocates from the region.

The “Youth in Power” project was conducted through a joint partnership of the following youth organizations operating in Europe and Central Asia: YouAct, YSAFE, Y-PEER, the PETRI-Sofia Center, and ASTRA Youth, as well as their national level counterparts.

The youth organizations mobilized more than 1,000 young people between 15 and 30 years old who answered a questionnaire gathering their views on current challenges they face regarding their sexual and reproductive health and rights, as well their recommendations, measures and actions that need to be taken by youth-led networks and policy and decision-makers.

Based on their input, 28 young SRHR activists from 15 countries gathered in Kiev, Ukraine in December 2016, in order to analyse the results, to build their advocacy skills and to develop a joint youth strategy for SRHR lobby and advocacy for the upcoming years (2017-2025).
