World Humanitarian Summit Advisory Group

World Humanitarian Summit Youth Advisory Group 

In collaboration with colleagues from the UN MGCY, IMCS is participating in a group of UN agencies and civil society organizations that is helping to facilitate youth participation in the upcoming UN World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) in May in Istanbul, Turkey.  At the moment, this group is working with the WHS Secretariat, as well as the government of the City of Istanbul to host a youth summit before the WHS.  IMCS, thanks to its participation, has been able to help in nominating youth to the WHS and will hopefully play a strong role in the event, as it has in previous WHS related youth events, namely the WHS Global Youth Consultation in Doha, Qatar in September 2015.
