The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Youth Forum, is being held this week in New York, providing a platform for young leaders from around the world to engage in a dialogue with United Nations Member States and to share ideas for advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, and the Paris Climate Agreement.The Forum brings youth leaders from around the world to the United Nations Headquarters in New York, including the YMCA's UN delegation.
“As a YMCA nothing is more important than Young People. We don’t just empower Young People, we provide space for Young People to be empowered. This is an appeal - If we are serious about Young People, we need to put our action in place – no one organization can do it alone. We need to work together to have a sustainable impact on Young People so they can prosper in the world.” - Carlos Sanvee, Secretary General World YMCA shared at the United Nations ECOSOC Youth Forum.
