Youth Platform was established with the purpose of strengthening the relationship among the youth organizations (non-governmental youth NGOs and National Youth Councils) of the Member States under the Turkic Council by bringing them under one roof and providing them a unified representative capacity in the world. The Regulation of the Youth Platform was adopted by the Ministers of the Turkic Council in charge of Youth and Sports in their second meeting in Baku in May 2017.

The Platform is expected to increase the cooperation and coordination among the Youth of the Member States as well as that of regional countries with various projects and activities. The Youth Platform will have representative and elected bodies such as a Board and will hold regular General Assemblies. Its Board will convene regularly in advance of the meetings of the Ministers in charge of Youth and Sports of the Turkic Council to reflect their problems and expectations. The Annual Reports adopted by the General assembly will be submitted to the Council of Heads of States at Turkic Council Summits.

At the Sixth Summit, President Nazarbayev and Zheenbekov instructed the Secretariat to work to protect the youth from radical ideologies. Presidents also urged the Secretariat to develop measures to expand the youth’s knowledge about the cultural peculiarities of our Member States so that they can represent the culture and language they belong to. Youth Platform will be an effective instrument to serve to the purpose of meeting the instructions of the Presidents.


Representatives of youth organizations from the Member States discussed the future course of action of the Youth Platform and determined the main areas of attention on the occasion of the First Turkic Council Young Leaders Forum held in November 2018 in Nakhchivan.
