STRIVING FOR PEACE AND A DECENT LIFE FOR ALL ON A SUSTAINABLE PLANET
The Youth Dialogue is an event for young people by young people. To ensure the Youth Dialogue is not just another United Nations event, the President wanted you to play an active role in his event and heard what you had to say.
That’s why he launched a series of monthly Twitter chats on youth engagement in different areas under the hashtag #AskUNPGA. In December 2017, he answered questions on migration, in January 2018 on SDGs, in February 2018 on human rights, and in March 2018 on women and girls, and in April 2018 on the role of youth in sustaining peace”. In May 2018, he did a Twitter Warm-Up chat for his Youth Dialogue later that month.
To hear your ideas, opinions and concerns shaping his event, the President launched a survey. The results will be published shortly. But you can get a glimpse of what the Survey looked like here.
Ahead of the Youth Dialogue, the President of the General Assembly called on all young people to submit their photos on the following theme: “Hearing young voices on education, employment & prevention of violent extremism” using #youth72 . The top three submissions were shown at the Youth Dialogue on 30 May.
