On Saturday 19th July the UK Government and UNICEF will host #YouthforChange, an event developed by young people for young people.

The event will cover a broad range of issues relating to girls' rights and empowerment, showcasing positive and aspirational examples for change. It will be a day of inspiring talks, interactive sessions, debates and sharing ideas.

Alan said: "#YouthforChange is a wonderful event designed and focusing on developing young people as future leaders. We are working hard to encourage greater involvement in the global youth movement of girls' rights. I welcome any nominations for two young people who have shown leadership in their schools, colleges, universities or communities and have demonstrated an interest in girls' rights".

To send in your nominations please e-mail alan.duncan.mp@parliament.uk by the end of June with your reasons for selecting your nominees.
