Warm greetings from the WAY Headquarters!
We are pleased to announce that the upcoming UNCTAD Youth Forum with the theme Youth Entrepreneurship: A Force Towards Inclusive and Sustainable Growth will take place from 22 to 26 October 2018 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, as part of the UNCTAD 2018 World Investment Forum (WIF).
We would greatly appreciate it if you can share the announcement among your constituency, members, young people and youth leaders. Youth between the ages of 18 and 30 are invited to apply to the Youth Forum and join, as they discuss the role of youth in trade and development. A total of 250 seats are available. Applications must be received by 31 July 2018. Details and a link to the application are available on the UNCTAD Youth website (www.unctad.org/youth).
The Forum will focus on topics such as: digital youth, bringing the vision of millennials to the forefront at an international level and involving youth in achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030. The Forum will run side by side with the WIF and participants will have the opportunity to attend public WIF events.
We look forward to hearing from you.
