Eliminating the Idea of Waste - 2017 Winter Youth Assembly (February 2nd)
Theme: Realizing the 2030 Agenda: Youth in Action #ActionBeginsWithYouth
With youth at the core of the discussions, the 19th session of the conference aims to highlight the interdependence and universality of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by exploring multifaceted global issues such as poverty, education, and sustainable consumption and production. Each topic will be viewed in depth under the lens of various SDGs and their targets. The conference also brings to the fore contemporary discussions on youth’s role in policy-making, present-day humanitarian crises, and their impacts on global development.
Interactive workshops led by notable organizations are designed to equip participants with practical skills and know-how to develop and implement fresh ideas that support the implementation of the goals. Deliberations will provide a conducive space for youth participants to contribute to a Youth Plan of Action that aims to capture and elevate youth voices in realizing the 2030 Agenda.
