The 3rd World Youth Congress in Scotland

Young People working together for a sustainable world
community, Scotland - July 30th to August 8th 2005.

The event is open to young people aged between 18 - 25
(you must be at least 18 on 30th July 2005) and the
congress theme is Young People working together for a
sustainable world community. The main goals of the
WYC series are to promote volunteering and global
citizenship as well as sustainable lifestyles.
Delegates will draw to the attention of government and
aid agencies worldwide how much young people do and
are doing to support the achievement of the UN
Millennium Development Goals. This congress will bring
together young development activists and government
and UN development professionals to review best
practice in youth led development and devise
strategies to mobilise more young people to take part
in them.

Who can apply?
All applicants must be 1825 years old on 30th July
2005 and will fall under four categories:

1) Activists - This conference is chiefly for young
leaders in the youth-led development field. In order
to qualify in this category you have to show your
commitment to action by working on a pre-congress
action project, that you can report on at the
Congress. If you plan and implement a youth-led
community improvement project between now and August
2005, we will welcome you to this Congress! All you
have to do is pay your travel expenses  a limited
number of scholarships may be available. It is,
however, best to seek your own sponsorship. This is a
conference where you will do more than sit around and
draw up fine-sounding declarations: for at least 3 of
the 10 days you will be out across Scotland working on
projects.

2) Performers/Artists - If you have a performance
group of dancers, singers, actors, comedians with
material that relates to the Congress themes, send us
a video with some reviews and photographs, and we will
consider you for the cultural programme that will take
place every evening of the Congress.

3) Young Journalists - If you work for a newspaper,
radio or TV station, ask your employer/line manager to
send you to report on this important world event.

4) Participants - If the above goals interest you and
you would like to learn about these issues from your
peers around the world, send in an application form.
