YouAct, European Youth Network on Sexual and Reproductive Rights announce their independence following registration as a ltd not for profit company in the UK.
Over the past 5 years YouAct has existed under the World Population Foundation (WPF) and has become a well known informal youth group working on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in Europe and internationally.
YouAct’s mission is to achieve a world in which young people’s and all people’s sexual and reproductive rights are realised and that meaningful youth participation becomes integrated into national, regional and international policy and decision making. The work of the organisation is underpinned by YouAct’s principle values and outlined in the recently published European Youth Charter on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights.
YouAct’s independence is a natural progression after 5 years of continued successes under WPF in projects, publications, trainings and campaigns, and it is seen as a way of further strengthening the network and gaining more independence as a youth-led organisation.
The organisation welcomes continued work with current and former partners and wishes to extend an introduction to other potential partners in Europe and internationally.
