A call to action to meaningfully engage youth and young evaluators in evaluation
The ‘Youth in Evaluation’ initiative urges the global evaluation community to commit to concrete action towards long-term, sustainable and meaningful engagement of youth and young and emerging evaluators in evaluation.
Real and meaningful engagement of youth in evaluation provides an unparalleled opportunity to make development programmes responsive to the needs and demands of the youth. It raises youth voices and agency in evaluation, making evaluation a transformative force for inclusive, equitable and sustainable development.
Youth in Evaluation invites individuals and institutions - including governments, parliamentarians, VOPEs, United Nations agencies, evaluators, academia, private sector, and the development sector at large - to adopt a manifesto to advance meaningful youth engagement in evaluation.
Join us in celebrating Youth in Evaluation on 23 May 2022 at 8 am ET, which also marks the launch of a manifesto on advancing meaningful youth engagement in evaluation.
