Email: • rmcgough@worldbank.org Introduction Many young people in the East Asia and Pacific (EAP) region have become interested and actively engaged in the world development process, and some are continuously making efforts to have their voices heard when policies are considered that affect them. The objectives of this seminar is to support those efforts. This seminar will bring together youth leaders, Bank staff, and policy-makers from the region, to discuss development programs initiated by youth as well as their concerns about role of youth in development. The seminar will also explore the potential for increasing youth participation in the decision-making process at national levels. The focus of this seminar is in line with the key message of the World Development Report 2007: Development and the Next Generation, which emphasizes youth as partners in the development agenda. By acknowledging the efforts of youth and their potential as effective partners, this seminar should serve as first step toward the creation of a more permanent dialogue between youth, the Bank, and national policy-makers on issues of mutual concern relating to international development. For further information, visit http://www.worldbank.org/wdr2007 or http://www.worldbank.org/eap Seminar The seminar will focus on increasing youth participation in the decision-making process at the national level. In response to interests expressed by youth during the first seminar, this seminar will explore the themes of employment. During the session, the youth will present ideas and discuss with policy-makers on how they might be able to contribute to the development process and how current policies might be improved from their perspectives. Policy-makers from respective countries will also provide their views on stated issues and discuss potential solutions and prospects for collaboration with youth in tackling the issues. The seminar provides an opportunity for inter-regional knowledge sharing on youth participation and seeks to stimulate discussions between youth and policy-makers in all participating countries. Dialogue between youth and policy-makers will also take place off-line in order to facilitate the discussions and develop plans for further collaboration.
