Attending the Women Deliver conference was a great opportunity for YouAct members to meet colleagues and partners from the region and beyond. The conference space was very vibrant, with lots of sessions occurring in parallel and an attractive exhibition space that included the Youth Zone and was stimulating for networking and sharing.

YouAct members facilitated sessions during the Youth Pre-Conference and at the Youth Zone and launched the toolkit “Speak my language”: Abortion Storytelling in Eastern Europe from a Youth Perspective(download/view the toolkit here). 

“I really appreciated the chance to meet other Young Leaders from all over the world. The conference was a very diverse, creative and dynamic meeting place. There were many ideas and experiences shared and exchanged freely and I felt that YouAct maintained a strong, visible and youth-positive presence throughout the whole conference” Luciana, YouAct member from Romania, Young Leader.

“ I got new and interesting insights, especially from the side-events, where the settings were more innovative (Fish ball, discussion groups etc.). The discussions on how to do safe sex sexy and how to overcome the global crisis of pleasure, as well as discussions on how we can include women and girls in decisions regarding their own lives were very enlightening” Cecilie, YouAct member from Denmark, part of the Women Deliver Youth Working Group.
