ABOUT THE EVENT / Asia-Pacific Urban Youth Assembly

As an official side event of the 6th Asia-Pacific Urban Forum (APUF-6) in Jakarta, Indonesia, the Asia-Pacific Urban Youth Assembly at APUF-6 (APUFY) held between 17-18 October 2015, provided a regional platform for Asia-Pacific’s youth to articulate urban issues and solutions impacting their lives and communities.

As the first gathering of diverse organizations and groups representing over 300 young people from 31 different countries in discussions of urban agenda at the regional level, APUFY offered a step towards strengthening constructive partnership with youth as key stakeholders in issues facing Asia-Pacific cities.

Please find below the official APUFY Outcomes Report and Summary of Outcomes. Thank you for all the partners, moderators, speakers, facilitators, rapporteurs and of course inspiring youth participants who contributed to the success of the event!

Key Messages / included in the APUF-6 Chair's Summary

  • Young people are capable to offer unique perspectives and ideas, in addition to advocating for their priority interests, and should be empowered as stakeholders, caretakers, and leaders for Asia-Pacific’s sustainable urban development;
  • Tomorrow’s leaders are already taking action today in their communities and cities to engage politically and to offer innovative solutions to urban challenges; local authorities and development partners should not be afraid of their increased participation, and should encourage their active involvement;
  • Young people including vulnerable youth should be involved in practical policymaking and implementation of solutions to urban challenges of Asia-Pacific towards people-centred urban development.
