For some time there has been a debate raging inside the National Youth Council over whether it should be affiliated to the World Assembly of Youth.
A compromise was reached with the decision to send three delegates to the 9th WAY General Assembly in Kenya, on the understanding that they would report back for a final decision to be made
Salient asked two of the delegates, Geoff Woolford (NYC Executive Officer) and Sue Green (NYC Executive member and former NZUSA Education Vice-president) for their comments on the Assembly.
The 9th General Assembly of the World Assembly of Youth (WAY) held from 23 to 28 February in Nairobi, Kenya, was attended by a delegation of three from the National Youth Council of New Zealand.
It was not without lengthy, and, at times, very heated debate that a decision was taken to send the delegation. And with the return of the delegates and a reassessment of NYC's position in WAY taking place in early June, that debate is far from complete.
