Applications are open for the Southern Voice Young Think Tankers Pitching Contest 2023. Southern Voice, in partnership with On Think Tanks (OTT), is launching the call for proposals for an exciting pitching contest for YTTs from the Global South in September, 2023.
The key theme of this event is fostering collaboration among young think tankers from the Global South. It aims to bring to the forefront concrete proposals on how to enhance these types of partnerships and provide them an effective networking platform to ensure impact.
Imagine you are appointed as the UN Youth Envoy, who is also the presiding officer of the newly established UN Office for Youth. As a mandate of the resolution A/RES/76/306 passed by the General Assembly, your office has to promote meaningful, inclusive and effective engagement of youth and youth-led and youth focused organizations in the work of the United Nations. You are interested in including the voices of the youth from the Global South. However, you discover through a recent study by Southern Voice that there are currently not many avenues for collaboration available to the young think tankers from the Global South. This inspires you to think about how to enable these collaborations among Southern Young Think Tankers (YTTs). Hence, you will need to prepare a proposal to the Secretary General of the UN.
