Youth Speak Up! For People and the Planet
Youth will take centre stage at the United Nations on 2 and 3 February during the annual Economic and Social Council’s Youth Forum, exploring the role of young people in the transition from the Millennium Development Goals to Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). The event will give the world’s youth a powerful platform to engage in dialogue with decision-makers on development issues most important to them.
The Forum will shine a light on the improvements in development since the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals in the year 2000, as well as serve as a podium for new, original approaches to issues that affect youth and their communities.

The event will be broadcast live via UN Web TV: http://webtv.un.org/
