The GEF(Generation Equality Forum) held in Paris this year was a real eye-opener to many. To our team at YWB, it was a catalyst to make an impact. The 2021 Global Youth & Diversity Summit that is being virtually hosted by YWB on the 19th of December 2021 aims to gather about 100 legitimate youth/women/girl/LGBTQ+ led organisations from various social sectors to create an impact, as stated in our official commitments made to the Generation Equality Forum at Paris. The organisations are chosen through a highly selective process.

Details:

 Every organisation will be required to send one delegate to the summit. During the summit, ambitious changemakers, young people and youth from all over the world will be given time to speak about their cause. At the summit, we will also get to hear and interact with members of Government, and Civil Societies (For instance, MPs from various nations, delegates to UN, Project Leaders, other members of various governing bodies).

Quite often, young people have no/little access to interacting with leaders to create a positive impact. Through the YWB Global Youth Summit, we wish to bring young people, women and youth to the table, and in the driver’s seat, by providing them with opportunities to collaborate with like minded organisations, and learn from world renowned personalities from various sectors.

Main Objectives:

  • A global, co-led, intersectional approach to youth and young people’s well-being
  • Showcase of inspiring leaders among members of UN entities, global youth, women leaders in government and academia.
  • Providing a platform for collaborating with strong women leaders, members of government & civil societies, members of the UN and young changemakers from all over the world to create a substantial impact.
  • Gaining different perspectives on an issue through interactive discussions.
