Youth, Leaders of Today and Tomorrow
Organized as a UN-HABITAT Global Partnership Initiative, in partnership with the Youth Organizing Committee, Environmental Youth Alliance, City of Vancouver Youth Outreach Team, and One Stop Youth Resource Centre
This roundtable will focus on profiling the leadership role youth take in solving the most pressing urban issues facing our planet. Researchers, policy makers and youth leaders from around the world will share stories, and uncover the underlying and systemic barriers youth face in tackling urban issues such as HIV-AIDS, environmental degradation, and economic marginalization. The outcome of this roundtable will inform the final youth statement to be formally presented to the World Urban Forum III.
