Resolution on reaffirming the youth quota

The LWF Assembly resolves as follows:

  1. To call upon the LWF member churches to implement the youth quota, so that youth are fully engaged through participation and voting in decision-making structures and processes; 
  2. To call upon the LWF Council and the LWF member churches to develop a transparent and accountable mechanism to ensure that the youth quota will be met with official delegates who have the right to vote (not stewards, advisors etc.) by all regions at future Assemblies; and 
  3. To call upon the LWF member churches to continue preparing youth in their leadership, strengthening youth networks through activities that empower their members for mutual cooperation in local and global contexts and, in so doing, nominate youth delegates who are familiar with the church’s work.
