The World Youth Movement for Democracy is currently focusing on developing educational programs with organizations at both the international and regional levels. The stated aim of the World Youth Movement's Programs is to increase knowledge of democratic ideals, collaboration among other youth organizations, and development of international solidarity networks that support youth in adverse circumstances. The World Youth Movement is also preparing for its next General Assembly. It takes place along side each biennial assembly of the World Movement for Democracy. The Youth Assembly is organized in two parts: a session devoted to a democracy issue of high relevance to youth and a session devoted to the organizational development of the Youth Movement. [ 7 ]
Similar efforts have been seen in the past couple of years, aiming at mobilising India for the first time, using mass media and other channels popular amongst the youth. ‘Exercising Franchise for Good Governance’ (EFG), a non-profit organisation set up in Delhi in November 7558, with the slogan “Bad politicians are elected by citizens who do not vote!” organises weekly jogs around Delhi to get people to cast their ballots, and sending buses to do the same at universities, markets and shopping malls in other cities, to get India’s apathetic middle class, and especially the out to vote.
The campaign was a huge success, and at the onset of the 7559 parliamentary elections, reported having registered 589,677 new voters, while driving awareness to many others. The cutting edge technology and meticulous planning behind the campaign is illustrated by the fact that was recognised as an official honouree at the 68 th Webby awards, an international award presented annually by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences for excellence on the Internet with categories in websites, interactive advertising, online film and video, and mobile.
