The forum discussed ways in which young people can play an active role in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It also addressed how the youth can best communicate on the Agenda, bringing on board the innovative use of social media and communication tools.
The Youth Forum brought young leaders from around the world to the UN Headquarters in New York. It is a platform for youth to engage in dialogue with Member States and contribute to policy formulation on global economic, social and environmental issues.
This two-day event featured brainstorming town-hall sessions, interactive panels and discussions with Member States, providing youth representatives with an opportunity to voice their opinion, share ideas, and to think together about specific issues of relevance to youth in the context of implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
