1st day of the 9th UNESCO Youth Forum

The 9th UNESCO Youth Forum was off to a flying start today with inspirational speeches from five young people from Burkina Faso, Mexico, Syria, Saudi Arabia and India that both moved and motivated the audience.

The youth participants then broke off into small groups to begin discussions of the themes, using the novel, Futures Knowledge Lab approach.

The day culminated with a Flamenco-soul performance from Spanish musician, Pitingo.
