ECOSOC YOUTH FORUM

The Youth Forum, held annually by ECOSOC since 2012, brings youth into discussions on the Millennium Development Goals and the post-2015 development agenda.

It offers a unique opportunity for youth to voice their opinions, share ideas, and think together about what they can do to achieve sustainable development. They take part in brainstorming sessions, interactive speaker panels and discussions with Member States on a main theme. Side events encourage participants to further engage with one another on a wide range of topics.

The two-day Forum’s primary participants come from National Youth Councils, the UN Major Group for Children and Youth, regional youth organizations, and youth-led and -focused organizations and networks.
