23rd Session of The Youth Assembly (United States, New York)
There was the official launch of the 2019 Youth Report Migration, displacement and education: building bridges, not walls in:
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 local and global movements that changed the world, despite the numerous challenges that they often 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. Guided by the theme of Empowering Youth for Global Development, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the U.N. 2019 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), the 23rd Session of The Youth Assembly will have the following four focus areas: Empowering Youth, Core Challenges, Regional Inclusion for Global Development and Empowering All: Leaving No One Behind.
