Eastern Visayas youth gather at international pre-conference in Catbalogan

With a gathering of more than 500 young people and youth advocates from across the region, the Youth International Pre-Conference was held at Samar State University Audio Visual Center last April 04, 2017.

It was the first convergence of young people with select local and foreign speakers and resource persons that guided the participants in crafting its very own manifesto,later called as the “Catbalogan Youth Declaration” that called for meaningful participation and involvement on various concerns of the said sector.

The pre-con was part of the First Session of the UCLG ASPAC – United Cities and Local Governments Asia-Pacific Executive Bureau (ExBu) hosted by Catbalogan City from April 04-07, 2017.
