Youth in Evaluation manifesto reaches 1000 signatories: A milestone for advancing meaningful youth engagement in evaluation

The Youth in Evaluation initiative is celebrating a significant milestone! Over 1,000 organizations and individuals have now signed the Youth in Evaluation manifesto, signifying a powerful global commitment to concrete actions towards long-term, sustainable and meaningful engagement of youth and young and emerging evaluators in evaluation. The signatories represent a diverse range of stakeholders, including governments, youth organizations, VOPEs, United Nations agencies, academia and the private sector.

The journey so far

The manifesto was launched in 2022 at the global inauguration of the Youth in Evaluation initiative. The manifesto quickly gained traction and led to the development of the Youth in Evaluation standards. The standards were unveiled during the first Youth in Evaluation week 2023. The momentum will continue at the upcoming Youth in Evaluation week 2024, which will cross fertilize practices that advance youth engagement in evaluation and uphold the standards.
