Prepare to Connect, Engage, and Contribute: 5 Key Actions to Participate in the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues

The United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues is a crucial platform where Indigenous Peoples from around the world can influence international policies and practices that directly impact their lives and futures. This body provides advice on indigenous issues, promotes integration and coordination within the UN system, and oversees the implementation of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The next session will be held from April 15 to 26, 2024 in New York, focusing on "Enhancing Indigenous Peoples’ right to self-determination: emphasizing the voices of Indigenous youth."

Below, we offer you five strategic actions to enhance your participation, both in-person and digitally, expanding our voices from local to global:
