23 July 2020: Launch of the Platform for Youth Inclusion and Political Participation (PYIPP) in Uganda

July 21st, 2020

To generate a coherent youth voice in the upcoming elections, and to ensure meaningful participation of young people in the governance and political processes, a group of youth focused organisations and young democracy actors in Uganda have found it necessary to pursue joint and/or interconnected work. A collaborative framework that inspires different actors and all critical youth constituencies has thus been found necessary.

With this, on 23rd July 2020, the Platform for Youth Inclusion and Political Participation (PYIPP) will be launched. The Platform is formed as a special purpose vehicle to inspire joint efforts and collaboration by young democracy actors and their organisations.
