2017 Summer Youth Assembly at UN Headquarters, New York

The 20th session of the Youth Assembly taking place at the United Nations will present both a wonderful opportunity and a challenge to stimulate and ensure youth engagement and participation in achieving the all important inclusive and sustainable future where no one will be left behind.
