If you're thinking of participating in
an international meeting (IM), you might be asking yourself: Why
would a young person go to an international meeting? Where do
you find out about them and get involved? How do you get there
and what needs to be prepared beforehand? How do you "work"
the meeting and have the meeting work for you? What about when
you get home - does the excitement (and work) stop on the last
day of the meeting?
International Meetings: A Pocketbook Guide to Effective Youth
Participation gives concise information
about the structure and process of United Nations (UN) meetings,
looks at the different avenues available to youth for participating,
and offers practical information for surviving an IM. The Guide
also touches on important questions regarding the impact of IMs
on the local, national, and international level that every past
and potential participant should consider.
