Welcome to Global Young Voices' official page for The Youth Assembly at the United Nations, held at the UN HQ in New York City between August 9th and 12th 2017. On this page you will find all updates on one of the most prestigious gatherings of brilliant, global youth: blog posts, biographies of delegates, pictures, videos and much more. Stay tuned!
Delegates from five continents around the world will participate actively at this year’s Summer Youth Assembly at the United Nations. Expect to hear their stories on how they landed at the UN and how they are making small but significant steps in the quest to apply sustainability across the different aspects of their lives.
Guided by the overarching principle of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, “Leaving no one behind,” the Youth Assembly is a conference that explores cross-cutting issues and solutions for sustainable development in the social, economic, and environmental dimensions, bringing together young global citizens from all over the globe.
The Social Ventures for Sustainable Development (SVSD) Seminar is an intensive Fairleigh Dickinson University certificate-based program, which aims to teach participants hands-on skills in creating and developing a social venture according to the principles of sustainability.
