23rd Session Theme
Empowering Youth for Global Development
February 15-17, 2018 • New York City, USA
The 23rd Session of The Youth Assembly takes the theme of “Empowering Youth for Global Development”. Throughout history, young people have played crucial roles in leading national and global movements that changed the world, despite the numerous challenges that they face, such as age discrimination, underrepresentation, lack of resources and unemployment. This conference aims to address these gaps and will work towards fostering the inclusion of youth across all social and regional groups in tackling and solving global challenges.
The concept note will be available soon.
