Global Interactive Dialogue on UN Youth Initiatives
In advance of International Youth Day (12 August), Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (at far right podium) speaks to young people in the audience at United Nations Headquarters as well as youth connected via video link from Africa, Latin-America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. “Your generation is the largest the world has ever known,” Mr. Ban told young people taking part in the Global Interactive Dialogue on UN Youth Initiatives. “The tools at your disposal for communicating and acting are unprecedented. But so are the challenges – from growing inequalities and shrinking opportunities, to the threats of climate change and environmental degradation.”
Also in front is Ahmad Alhendawi, Envoy on Youth, who moderated the event.
