Description
The sixth Economic and Social Council Youth Forum concluded today with participants calling for young people to champion their own interests, rather than merely handing over power to their elders, as they took their place at the forefront of implementing the Sustainable Development Goals.

Panel discussions focused on youth engagement in eradicating poverty, and on ways to finance youth development, with an accent on youth entrepreneurship, partnership with the private sector, job creation for young people and enhancing their voice in decision-making.
