Academies serve as an opportunity for particularly committed Delegates to enhance their learning, build skills and resources to impact their field, and strengthen their action network beyond the conference.
The youth of today are the largest generation in history. As they stand at the forefront to inherit and make a breakthrough for a better future, it is critical to provide young people with knowledge and understanding of the factors contributing to the world’s greatest problems. The Youth Assembly Academies introduce aspiring leaders into the world of international development and affairs through an exploration of key principles and practices across a wide range of global issues, as well as high-level exchange with important players in the field.
Participants will have the opportunity to visit local, national, and/or global institutions from various sectors, interact with their experts, and understand how these organizations implement the SDGs and their solutions to major world issues. In addition to joining hundreds of other young leaders and changemakers at The Youth Assembly, participants also attend specialized learning sessions to analyze issues, contribute ideas, and plan action-oriented solutions. Participants get access to special events to network and celebrate diversity and global citizenship.
