Global House of Young Voices

Virtual Youth Parliament with Frankfurt's Sister Cities

In May of 2024, a one-week sum­mit with young people from Frank­furt's 17 sister cities will take place: The foun­dation for an inter­national youth parliament, the “Global House of Young Voices”, is to be laid. The summit strengthens both: the inter­national net­work and the inter­cultural compe­tence of young people. The result of the summit is creating a frame­work for the young people to discuss politi­cal questions in a multi-perspective setting, to identify common challenges, and to articulate require­ments for the (virtual) conti­nuation of the “Global House of Young Voices”.

The goals of the project are to pro­mote edu­cation for global citizen­ship in the sense of the UN Sus­tainable Develop­ment Goals, to link local and global political pro­cesses, and to sustain­ably streng­then Frankfurt's city partner­ships.

The pro­ject takes place with­in the frame­work of “Netzwerk Paulskirche”. It is fun­ded by the City of Frank­furt am Main as well as Stiftung junge Weltbürger (“Young Global Citizens Foundation”) and coor­dinated by PRIF.

Frank­furt’s Sister Cities in­clude: Birming­ham, Buda­pest, Deuil-La Barre, Dubai, Eskişehir, Gra­nada (Nicaragua), Guang­zhou, Kairo, Kra­kau, Leip­zig, Lyon, Mai­land, Philadel­phia, Prag, Tel Aviv, Toron­to, Yoko­hama.
