Theme: Youth taking action to implement the 2030 Agenda
Setting the Stage
Moderator: Mr. Ahmad Alhendawi, United Nations SecretaryGeneral’s Special Envoy on Youth Interactive Discussion, featuring Ministerial participation, on the Role of Youth in the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda
The 2030 Agenda for sustainable development includes specific goals and targets related to youth. In addition, the success of this Agenda will depend on how all sectors of societies engage in its implementation, beyond what is of direct concern to them, and contribute to follow-up and accountability mechanisms to be established in this context.
This session aims at launching the discussion on the role young people can play in implementing the 2030 Agenda, on the main obstacles for their inclusive and meaningful participation, and on what should be done, including in terms of new governance mechanisms, to overcome them.
