Future Youth Schools Forums (FYS-Forums) is a cross-field strategic partnership, which aims to create a model for Global Citizenship Youth Forums to be run by schools, for schools. FYS-Forums bring together a broad range of partners spanning academic, global education and youth work disciplines. The project builds on existing approaches to globally focused youth forums which are generally informal in nature, and aims to integrate a more sustainable model into formal education. The project will ensure each Youth Forum is participatory and inclusive, and encourages young people to take action on a global issue. The FYS-Forums model applies high quality informal youth work principles enabling the project to be both innovative and complimentary to existing work.
