About the ECOSOC Youth Forum
The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Youth Forum was held on 7 and 8 April 2021. It is a virtual event bringing on board young people from around the world.
The Forum provides a global platform for a candid dialogue among Member States and young leaders from around the world on solutions to challenges affecting youth wellbeing. It also serves as a unique space for young people to share their vision and actions as well as to provide youth perspectives on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.
The 2021 Forum’s discussions was guided by the overall theme of the 2021 ECOSOC and High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF): “Sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, that promotes the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development: Building an inclusive and effective path for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda in the context of the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development”. Consideration was also be given to the group of SDGs decided by Member States for in-depth discussions at the 2021 HLPF, namely, SDGs 1, 2, 3, 8, 10, 12, 13, 16 and 17.
