ActionAid Denmark is part of a global movement of more than 25 million people in 45 countries working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all. We partner with community-based organizations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America to fight hunger, build resilient communities, empower women, ensure access to quality education, provide relief from disasters and conflicts, and hold governments accountable to their citizens. We have a vision of creating a world in which every person enjoys their right to a life with dignity. Global Platforms is one of many initiatives that ActionAid has developed to advance our mission.
The fruitful partnership between UNV and Action Aid Denmark started in 1971. Currently the collaboration between UNV and ActionAid Denmark focusses on the capacity building and training of UN Volunteers, as well as local UNV partners and collaborators, such as civil society organizations and youth, and developing joint learning content for UN Volunteers.
As a result, we have been offering specific training to UN Volunteers through the ActionAid Global Platforms. The ActionAid Global Platforms provide innovative trainings and capacity development for young people to lead social, political and economic change around the world. Located in regions where basic civil liberties and political freedoms are often curtailed, the Global Platforms are a network of vibrant, locally-managed youth hubs that offer a physical space for youth to meet, discuss and act together - a place where they can exchange ideas with their peers in an effort to create social change.
