The goal of the Youth Task Force is to promote youth engagement for gender equality and encourage the active involvement of young people in our Committee. The group is currently being re-formed under the leadership of Rosa Arnold and welcomes the participation of youth from all our member organizations. Mainstreaming the active engagement of youth remains a priority of NGO CSW Geneva.

Previously (August – September 2021) a 4-part webinar series on leadership and literacy was held, and a Global Youth Conference focused on improving working methods of the CSW in January 2022. Their agreed conclusions were forwarded to the CSW66 Bureau, UN Women and others. They finished their time-bound mandate by participating in the Geneva/Vienna Consultation Day event that kicked off the CSW66 Forum.
