Third Brussels Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region

On 12-14 March the EU and the UN will co-host a third Brussels Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region. No Lost Generation partners are working with bloggers on the Voices of Youth Arabic blogging platform to produce a short video where young people can share their experiences and perspectives with policy makers and donors at the conference. It is hoped that one session in the conference will focus on the importance of Education and Child Protection, urging the international community and governments in the region to continue and step up their efforts to ensure that all children and young people have access to high quality learning opportunities, and are protected from exploitative labor, child marriage, and other forms of violence that disrupt access to education.
