Members of The Hague Youth Council
On December 7, The Hague Youth Council for a United Future held its first assembly. The Hague Youth Council consists of a group of ambitious, young women who in the coming months will address the interlinked problems of islamophobia, xenophobia and gender inequality.
At the meeting, the council members exhibited strong interest and motivation to start working on the issues and emphasized the importance of having a platform like this to enable change.
The Hague Youth Council will launch an awareness-raising campaign to create attention on the intersections of islamophobia, xenophobia and gender inequality, as well as the challenges Muslim women and migrants face, and will include empowering narratives on Muslim women. Furthermore, The Hague Youth Council will advocate and lobby these problems by setting up policy recommendations and hosting a roundtable event with stakeholders.
Gender Concerns International is confident that The Hague Youth Council will accomplish great work on the issues. We will keep you updated on when you will be able to follow The Hague Youth Council on social media to witness their awareness-raising campaign.
The Hague Youth Council is facilitated by Gender Concerns International with support from European Network Against Racism (ENAR) and Open Society.
