In commemoration of International Youth Day 2016, we draw your attention to the five-point action agenda we presented in New York during the activities of the UN High-level Political Forum. Endorsed by 93 organisations and individuals, feel free to share our action agenda to your networks, or check out what you or your organisation can do to bring out the leadership qualities of the youth.
Young people are naturally curious about sex and sexuality. Rutgers asserts the right of young people to receive adequate education to make well-informed choices in relationships and their sexual lives. Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) means providing information and guidance about the physical and emotional aspects of growing up and starting relationships.
Compared to many other countries the Netherlands has one of the lowest teenage pregnancy rates and scores low on STIs. Young people are generally well informed on sexuality and contraceptive use is high. We are often asked about sex education in the Netherlands, and how we have become so open minded about sex. Our film 'Dutch Lessons in Love' has tried to answer these questions.
Right Here Right Now is a global partnership of eight organisations that envisions a world where young people, in all their diversity, acquire full and uninterrupted access to comprehensive sexuality education, and youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health services, including safe abortion. To achieve this, the partnership advances young people’s meaningful participation in all aspects of development, and harnesses the capacity of institutions to enable young people’s access to their full SRHR.
