Dear DRR Champions,

Would you like a chance to volunteer and lead a working group? Are you actively involved in DRR-related initiatives? Are you between 18 to 29 years old? This is your chance to be a part of the DRR leadership team.

The Sendai Stakeholder Children and Youth (SSCY) also known as DRR Working Group, a constituency within the Major Group for Children and Youth (MGCY) continues to lobby for the youth and young people’s voices to be heard, considered, and included in efforts geared towards making DRR resilient. It is with the same spirit and pleasure that we announce a new call for applications for joining the constituency's leadership team.

There is much work that needs to be done if the children and youth are not to be forgotten and left behind. Greater partnerships among stakeholders in support of children and youth need to be forged for our efforts to translate to physical actions within our localities. We are in need of volunteer leaders who are self-driven and can dedicate a few hrs per week to the DRR Working Group mandate.

We hereby open up the following positions for all interested candidates to apply to.

The vacant positions are:

  • 3 Global Focal Points
  • 2 Regional Focal Points for Europe region
  • 2 Regional Focal Points for the Americas region
  • 2 Regional Focal Points for MENA region
  • 2 Regional Focal Points for Africa region
  • 2 Regional Focal Points for Asia Pacific region
