The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Youth Forum, to be held on 30-31 January 2018, will provide a platform for youth to engage in a dialogue with Member States and to discuss the policy frameworks and promote innovative, institutionalised approaches and initiatives for advancing the youth development agenda at national, regional and global levels with a view to promoting solutions to the global challenge of strengthening resilience and sustainable development. The Forum will bring youth leaders from around the world to the United Nations Headquarters in New York. It will give them the opportunity to engage with government representatives, youth delegates, policymakers and other relevant stakeholders in civil society and the private sector.

Non-governmental organizations in consultative status with ECOSOC that are working on relevant youth-related issues are invited to attend. Due to limited seating only two (2) representatives per NGOs will be able to attend. These NGOs should already have UN passes to access the UN Headquarters. For more information on the ECOSOC Youth Forum, kindly visit the following website:
