The Rwenzori Intergenerational Dialogue (IGD) is just around the corner, and it’s time for young people to gear up and get ready for this exciting event. Set to take place on the 20th of October 2023 in Fort Portal District, Kabarole, the IGD aims to foster powerful dialogue on intergenerational differences and find solutions that address the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) barriers faced by young people.
This year’s theme is “Progressive Realization of SRHR for Young People Through Intergenerational Equity.” It’s a call to action for all generations to come together and work towards creating a more equitable society, where young people’s SRHR needs are acknowledged and met.
But what exactly is the IGD, and why is it so important? Well, the IGD is not your ordinary conference or symposium. It’s a platform that brings together various organizations, individuals, policy actors, and influencers who are passionate about SRHR. It aims to create partnerships, spark meaningful conversations, and inspire collective action towards gender equality and improved SRHR for adolescents and young people.
Now, you might be wondering, “Why should I, as a young person, care about this dialogue?” The answer is simple: because it directly affects you and your future. The IGD provides a space for your voice to be heard, for your concerns to be addressed, and for your ideas to shape the policies and practices that impact your SRHR.
Think about it. Comprehensive sexuality education, gender-based violence, teenage pregnancy, and other SRHR issues are not just topics for adults to discuss. They directly impact young people’s lives and well-being. By actively participating in the IGD, you have the chance to influence and inform national, regional, and international policy discussions on these crucial matters.
But don’t worry, the IGD won’t be all serious and formal. It’s designed to be a fun and engaging event that young people can relate to. There will be dynamic speakers who will share their knowledge and experiences, workshops where you can learn new skills and tools, and interactive sessions where you can connect with like-minded individuals who share your passions and concerns.
So, are you ready to be part of this incredible dialogue? Are you ready to make your voice heard and contribute to the progressive realization of SRHR for young people? If your answer is a resounding “YES,” then mark your calendar, spread the word, and get ready for the Rwenzori Intergenerational Dialogue 2023!
Stay tuned for the announcement of the inspiring speakers who will be leading the discussions at IGD 2023. This is your chance to be part of a movement that strives for intergenerational equity and a brighter future for all young people. Get ready to make a difference!
