A declaration for change!! Young people ages 15 to 29 years, check this out!!

CROWDOUTAIDS - Listen up! CrowdOutAIDS is proud to announce a collaboration with the DC Youth Force on our new Declaration for Change project! Here’s how to take part:

Young people from around the world are invited to collaborate on a list of priorities, a Declaration for Change for the AIDS response, to achieve an AIDS-free generation.

The declaration will lay the foundation for how youth organizations, networks and activists will collaborate and mobilize over the next years to reach the 2015 goals of the Political Declaration on AIDS.

Participation is quick and easy, and the project is open to everyone.

You can add an idea, vote on other people’s ideas to rank the ideas, or suggest an edit to improve somebody else’s idea. This leads to the best ideas rising to the top and improving. We hope you’ll visit frequently to make sure your views are captured.

Before the conference, the DC YouthForce surveyed more than 400 young people from 91 different countries, including young people who are most at risk of HIV and more than 100 young people living with HIV to understand the most pressing issues young people face in the AIDS response.

They came up with three defining words: Access, Partnership and Equality, and compiled the demands young people made on the established leaders of the response.

But we thought, if a new generation of activists are to craft a future without AIDS we all need to use next-generation technology to take us beyond survey-participation to co-creation and collaboration.

So we’ve teamed up with Codigital to help us reach a collaboratively authored Declaration for Change, and we need YOU to come up with 10 ideas for how WE as the next generation of activists will get us to an AIDS free generation.

This initiative is part of the three day Youth Pre-Conference running from 18-20 July. The final declaration will be presented at the Opening Session of the AIDS2012 Global Village on the 23rd of July, 2012.

Make sure you add your voice & vote now!!!
