CALD Youth

CALD Youth Logo (With Title)

CALD Youth is the youth wing of the Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats, (CALD) with membership from the youth departments of the CALD member parties: Cambodia National Rescue Party, Indonesia Democratic Party of Struggle, Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia, Liberal Party of the Philippines, Civil Will Green Party of Mongolia, Singapore Democratic Party, Liberal Party of Sri Lanka, Democratic Progressive Party of Taiwan, Democrat Party of Thailand; and National League for Democracy as an observer party.

The organization aims to promote liberal and democratic values among the Asian youth; create regional solidarity among the liberal youth community on issues relating to the violation of liberty, democracy and equality; and increase the participation of youth in mainstream politics and policy-making.

CALD Youth believes that freedom is necessary for the youth to develop and reach their own human potential fully, and that equality means that all people are entitled to enjoy this freedom. Its members strongly advocate for democracy, human rights, free market economic principles, and rule of law.

Since its formation in 2010, CALD Youth has held international workshops and training on strategic planning, leadership training, strategic political communications, and climate change.

As of December 2012, CALD Youth became a regional member organization of the International Federation of Liberal Youth (IFLRY). CALD and IFLRY first collaborated with each other for a discussion on the role of youth in promoting nonviolent political change during the Liberal International Congress in June 2011.
