Donor Briefing on Participatory Action Research: A Dialogue with Young Researchers from the MENA Region
The EU Delegation in Jordan is pleased to invite you to a regional level briefing and discussion co-hosted by UNICEF’s Regional Office for the Middle East and North Africa on behalf of the No Lost Generation partnership, on 22 April 2019, at the Landmark hotel in Amman from 9am to 12pm.
Funded by the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis (the “Madad” Fund), the Participatory Action Research project is a systematic adolescent and youth engagement initiative that aims to generate evidence with and for young people – particularly from vulnerable and marginalized backgrounds, to empower them to lead community-based research, and support them in becoming change makers/advocates on issues of concern to them.
This briefing will focus on research produced by young people from Syria and Syria-crisis-affected countries, providing them a forum to share their main findings and advocate on the issues they have explored and prioritized for action in their communities.
To RSVP, please contact Henrik Dale at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 10, 2019

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.
