Global Youth Parliament (in short GYP) is a non-profitable, non-political, social organization not affiliated to any religious sectors. GYP headquarter is in Nepal. Now, we have a country coordinator in 43 countries all around the world. Our work mainly focuses on the theme of Political leadership, entrepreneurship, peace, good governance, democracy and constructive dialogue, inclusive policy formulations, sustainable peace and equitable development. GYP aims to build national, regional as well as global forum for dialogue and advocacy on the theme that needs immediate and longer term global attention like leadership, democracy and good governance, socially responsible trade practices, active citizenship, cultural exchanges and sustainable development and peace. GYP believes that the youth of the world must come together and join hands to achieve the sustainable solutions for greater world community.
