GIYC Affiliates

UNGIYC Indigenous Youth Regional and
National Affiliate Organizations:

UNGIYC members and constituents are the international, national, regional, and local level Indigenous Peoples organizations, collectives, and youth leaders. Indigenous youth represent themselves as well as the Indigenous  peoples to whom they belong when they become members of the GIYC. Membership of GIYC is not limited to the attendance of meetings at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, but is an open space for Indigenous youth and Indigenous youth organizations to engage with the GIYC in relation to the promotion and protection of Indigenous Peoples rights.
