Dear colleagues,

Warm greetings from the World Assembly of Youth headquarters in Melaka, Malaysia!

We are pleased to inform you that the Yuvsatta (Youth for Peace), in collaboration with the World Assembly of Youth (WAY), will organise the 12th Global Youth Peace Festival (GYPF 2017), ‘Youth of the World Unite – You Have Everything to Gain!’ scheduled to take place from September 29 - October 2, 2017 in Chandigarh – SAS Nagar – Amritsar, India.

Over the past 11 years, the Global Youth Peace Festival has been pursuing the agenda of youth leadership and transformative change. It has also shown the way to build a global culture of volunteerism and service. As was the case always at GYPF, GYPF 2017 will provide a platform for young people to be actively involved in decision-making and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) agenda.

The SDGs are formally adopted by Heads of State at the United Nations marking a historic moment that sets the world’s development agenda for the next 15 years. If countries are to succeed in achieving the SDGs, leaving no one behind along the way, public sector must seek out an active and substantive engagement of young women and men from diverse backgrounds in national-level planning, implementation, and monitoring. The overall success of the SDGs depends on youth engagement for these goals to be realized. It is critical that all stakeholders, in particular young people, are included in the process right from the start.

We would like to hereby circulate the attached tentative agenda for the 12th Global Youth Peace Fest (GYPF 2017). In general, the agenda of this inspiring event is given as follow.

Day 1 - September 29, 2017      : Inaugural, Youth Panel Discussions, Global Youth ICON Awards with a cultural evening at Chandigarh.

Day 2 - September 30, 2017      : Panel Discussions on GYPF 2017 sub-themes at ISB (Indian School of Business), Sector 70, SAS Nagar, Punjab
