International Youth Conference 2021

30 January @ 11:30 - 31 January @ 15:15 EST

Free

COVID-19 has paused the life of every human being on earth and affected global development at large. Whereas the world is under lockdown the progress of development is halted. On account of this, the International Youth Conference 2021 (IYC 2021) will take place under the theme ‘Regeneration: Moving forward with Development’. The conference will shed light on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and youth relevant themes. Youth and field experts will come together to discuss youth issues and drive youth action towards the achievement of SDGs while the world is at pause.

Register here!

The objectives of the conference are:

  • To provide an international platform to youth to develop and engage in participatory development of the world
  • To support the UN achieve its Sustainable Development Goals through youth engagement
  • To empower gender and youth equality and inclusion in decision making, policy making, and development at all levels (communal, local, institutional, national, and international)
  • To brainstorm implementation of the Youth Climate Compact
  • To chalk out innovative ideas for development
  • To foster youth advancement through digital innovation and tools
  • To steer thinking and aspiration towards social developmental solutions provision

IYC 2021 will also formulate a policy and action recommendation/document/manual for youth on how to act under ‘world at pause’ conditions, how to find relevant opportunities, combat depression and come out of it a victor.

The conference is truly global with organizers and speakers from all continents and is open to anyone identifying as youth as per the UN definition.
