In support of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Global Education First Initiative, hundreds of youth representatives from across the world will come together for Malala Day - to celebrate Malala's 16th birthday and show their support for universal education.
The main event will be a youth assembly held in the Trusteeship Council Chamber where Malala Yousafzai will celebrate her 16th birthday by addressing young leaders who support universal education. This will be followed by a Global Education First Initiative Youth Fair, and skill building sessions for young people.
