Why is a Youth Agenda needed?
This Youth Agenda represents our united voices as Filipino Youth from all sections and walks of life across the country. As a living document, it is continuously being developed to respond to the challenges in Human Rights and Democracy that our generation faces and to reflect our genuine aspirations for meaningful social change.
Who made this?
This Youth Agenda for Rights-based Democratic Governance was collectively drafted and developed by around 2,000 youth leaders and youth groups nationwide. It was born out of a series of youth consultations and visioning workshops nationwide since 2018 through 5 Regional Youth Conferences in Metro Manila, Iloilo. Bacolod, Cebu, and Cagayan de Oro; 3 Youth Camps in Northern Luzon, NCR, Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao; 3 National Youth Summits in 2017, 2018, and 2019; a youth survey with 1,000 respondents; more than 50 local youth meetings; and 2 National Youth Conferences.

What matters to the Youth?
Our agenda is framed based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and pays tribute to the ideals of the Katipunan: Kalayaan, Kaginhawaan, and Kapatiran.
These are our civil-political freedoms, through empowering the citizenry by upholding their rights, freedoms, and dignity.
These are our economic rights through inclusive economic progress and sustainable welfare and development for all.
