Theme: Innovation and Collaboration for a Sustainable World.
With a global population of over 1.8 billion people, youth are the world’s greatest untapped resource, possessing the talents and ambition to overcome society’s biggest challenges.
In order to achieve the 2030 Agenda, it is imperative to engage youth as beneficiaries, stakeholders, and leaders in the global movement for inclusive and sustainable development.
The 2018 Winter Youth Assembly is a platform to elevate the voices of young people in international dialogues, empower youth to advocate for future generations, and mobilize youth as agents of impactful change.
Organized on the theme of “Innovation and Collaboration for a Sustainable World,” the 21st session of the Youth Assembly is a forum to open up new pathways for cooperation and social entrepreneurship, while harnessing the creativity and energy of youth delegates for global impact. In alignment with the upcoming 2018 High Level Political Forum, the conference will focus on the environmental dimensions of the 2030 Agenda, particularly Goals 6, 7, 11, 12, and 15.
