Emerging Leaders

The Emerging Leaders Program expands youth participation throughout the Forum's activities and facilitates youth-adult partnerships empowering young people to play an integral role in their communities and in the creation of a new global culture. Since 1995, youth from all over the world have been integrated into the Forum network and structure and,through the internet, many more youth have been involved.

The results have been far-ranging and diverse. Youth have been invited to sit on the Forum's Board of Directors; an advisory group has been formed for a proposed youth peace conference in Moscow in 1999; a global youth summit in Mexico is in its advanced planning stages; and Forum youth involvement by other organizations has been sought on community issue task forces, conflict resolution initiatives and womens issues panels.

Notable Quote "However haltingly, we have made some progress."
   --former Commander-in-chief of the U.S. Strategic Air Command, Gen. Lee Butler
