Regarding National Youth Assembly (NYA) 2016

Association of Youth Organizations Nepal (AYON) and Search for Common Ground (SFCG) Nepal is organizing National Youth Assembly (NYA) 2016 scheduled for 27 May 2016 (Friday), in collaboration with Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYs) and National Youth Council – Nepal. The assembly is aimed to congregate 500+ youths from different districts of Nepal to discuss on various issues including post-constitution political transition, peace, reconstruction and other themes relevant to youth and development.

The National Youth Assembly (NYA) is a part of the Youth Engage (YE) project funded by the European Union (EU) which was implemented by a consortium of various organizations, namely: Search for Common Ground (SFCG) Nepal, Association of Youth Organizations Nepal (AYON), Youth Initiative (YI), All People Empowerment Center (APEC), and New World (NW). The project was implemented in 8 districts of the country – Morang, Sunsari, Saptari, Siraha, Dhanusha, Mahottari, Sarlahi and Rautahat. The NYA is organized to implement the proposed action plan being developed through a series of consultations in the 8 districts of the central and eastern districts to promote the meaningful role of youth in promoting peace, stability and accountability.

NYA aims to provide a platform for disseminating the District Action Plan 2015, a compilation of opinions, evidence-based facts, and views compiled from grass root interaction with youth from the project districts. A youth declaration reflecting the District Action Plan (DAP) 2015 will also be released. The large assembly is a continuation of the same YE project.
