The WYMD is a decentralized network for information sharing, collaboration, and solidarity. Therefore, individuals and organizations define their own roles in the network, participating in many different ways on many different levels.

All activities that develop as part of the WYMD occur under four main area:

  • Capacity-building for conflict resolution and the non-violent promotion of democracy
  • Advocacy and promotion of democratic values and human rights
  • Networking to exchange ideas and promote collaboration
  • Developing international solidarity networks, to support young people working in adverse circumstances

The WYMD Secretariat is currently working in collaboration with partners and participants to develop programs in these areas. Since international solidarity is a critical component of our networking efforts, the Youth Movement uses electronic alerts and statements to raise awareness of issues related to our members, and to call others to join in solidarity or to take action.

The simplest thing all participants can do is regularly share information with the network. We rely on contributions from participants to make the WYMD website a great resource for knowing what’s going on with youth democracy activism!
