In celebration of the International Youth Day, the President of International Federation for Peace & Sustainable Development, Mrs. Sally Kader requests the pleasure of your company at our side event panel discussion on creating safe spaces for youth empowerment on August 13th, 2018 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, NY.
Topic: S.P.A.C.E for Youth: Safe Place to Actively Collaborate and Engage for Youth
Date: August 13th, 2018
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Location: Conference Room 8, United Nations Headquarters, NY 10017
Young people constitute the majority for the world’s population today. In 2015, a global figure of 1.2 billion aged 15-24 accounted for one in every six people worldwide. However, nearly 535 million of children are living in harsh conditions, lacking access to decent health, education and protection services. Discrimination based on religion, race, disability, age and gender, high unemployment rates and lack of opportunities are also some of the adversities that the youth need to overcome. In face of such hardship, what is much needed for youth to become activists who can change the world into a place free of hunger, inequality and violence is a safe space where their voices are heard.
Our event will feature a prominent panel of speakers including youth leaders, ambassadors, ministers and other experts in the field of youth and social development speaking from their expertise and personal experience. The speakers will shed light on effective methods to create safe spaces for youth for their empowerment through government policies.
At IFPSD, we are deeply committed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which necessitates the empowerment and inclusion of youth in the development plan, and we hold events to celebrate the International Youth Day annually. The panel discussion aims to take a step forward towards the realization of sustainable peace, stability, human rights and effective governance, with the collective voice of youth better heard. Please join us at our event on August 13th at the United Nations.
