Commonwealth Youth Forum 2007

Commonwealth Youth Forum (CYF) has developed as a pan-Commonwealth platform for young people to share concerns and recommendations with the wider Commonwealth at the time of Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings and beyond.

CYF6 was a great success and the voice of young people is an even more integral part of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) process.

Delegates at the 2007 CYF meeting produced a final Communique which was given to all the heads of government delegates.


Look out for the latest updates from this project below.

We, the delegates of the sixth Commonwealth Youth Forum, representing 47 Commonwealth member countries and territories, are pleased to report that we have held fruitful discussions under the theme of ‘Breaking Barriers: Unleashing Young People’s Potential for evelopment’. We thank our Ugandan hosts for this opportunity. We have committed ourselves to achieving substantial outcomes before young Commonwealth representatives meet again in Trinidad and Tobago in 2009 and ask you for your help in realising these. Young people make up more than half of the Commonwealth’s population. We must continue invest in young people as their involvement can ensure advancements for generations to come.
