The Youth Political and Civic Engagement Cohort, better known as the Youth Democracy Cohort, is one of the platforms that was launched as part of the Year of Action of the 2021 Summit for Democracy. The Cohorts bring together governments, civil society and the private sector to advance good governance and democratic renewal around the world.

The Youth Democracy Cohort (YDC) is an inclusive platform to take meaningful action toward implementing Summit for Democracy commitments on youth political and civic engagement through resources, expertise, research, activities, and achievements.

Our cohort is composed of 9 co-leading organisations, joined by more than 100 other member organisations from around the world. The aim of our cohort is to promote youth political and civic engagement globally.

 

The YDC aims also to broaden the scope of the already existing evidence on Youth Political Participation and is working on different youth-led research studies
