Youth Assembly at the United Nations – 2016

Jan 5, 2016Events

The 2016 Summer Youth Assembly will take place at the UN Headquarters August 10-12 and will focus on empowering youth leaders and young professionals in the implementation of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Youth are ideally placed to champion these goals and carry them into the future— their future. Corresponding with International Youth Day and less than a year after the establishment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the 2016 Summer Youth Assembly is at the focal point of transition, an ideal time and place to prepare youth for their role in the world they are poised to inherit. By not only informing them of issues but also giving them the tools to tackle these issues, the Youth Assembly aims to transform vision into action as delegates better themselves, their community, and eventually the world.

The 2016 Summer Youth Assembly is made possible through lead endorsement by the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Korea to the UN. Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the UN Office in Belgrade H.E. Simona-Mirela Miculescu is the honorary chair.
