Invitation to the WYR 2013


I hope this email finds you well.

As you may be aware we are organizing a number of activities to get the perspectives on their experience in the migration process ( i.e. when they prepare to migrate, in transit, in destination countries, when they return to their countries of origin and when they are left behind by their parents). Inputs received from young migrants and other youth who are affected by migration will contribute directly to the the 2013 World Youth Report (WYR) that will address youth migration concerns.

Following the positive experience of the 2011 WYR, the WYR 2013 will also be prepared through an inclusive and participatory approach to allow young migrants and other youth affected by migration to share their experiences and perspectives on migration. We have already established a website – for this purpose and e-discussions are currently on-going alongside a call for other contributions from young people and youth organizations (i.e. survey, migration stories, paintings, etc.)

I was going through your website stream of photos and realized that you have some interesting photo’s which you might want to submit for the World Youth Report. We would like to invite you and your organization to support us in the development of the WYR by contributing some artistic pieces ( see also : ) . Inputs received will contribute to the WYR. Kindly let us know if you have some pictures that illustrate young people and migration and we will be happy to use them for the purposes of the World Youth Report.

  1. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my
    own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
