The UN is marking its 75th anniversary at a time of great disruption for the world, compounded by an unprecedented global Health crisis with severe economic and social impacts. Will we emerge stronger and better equipped to work together? Or will distrust and isolation grow further?
From 19-21 September 2020, young leaders from all over the world, will come together, online and on-site, to take counsel on how we can turn the global health crisis of COVID-19 into an opportunity for global renewal. Inspired by the Doughnut Economy model, the Youth Assembly will focus on the burning question: “How can we meet the needs of all – within the means of the planet?”
The epicenter of the initiative will be YOUTH ISLAND – a former sea fortress located a short sailing trip from UN-City in Copenhagen, Denmark. Since the fortress was handed over to the Scouts 5 years ago, it has been transformed into a unique gathering place for young people – and a thriving wild habitat, where grasses, herbs and wild flowers have started to overgrow the old gun emplacements and hangars.
The live event on Youth Island will be connected to local gatherings in the participating cities via live-stream. Youth from all over the world will be able to join the conversation on MINDPOOL* – and the conclusions from the whole Youth Assembly will be handed over to the UN, on Peace Day, 21 September 2020.
The event is being produced by Citytransformers in collaboration with Ubiquity University (a university designed to make global social impacts) AIESEC (the largest student driven organization in the world) – MasterPeace (a youth driven NGO with 55 clubs in 40 countries) Peace Child International (an organisation that over the past 30 years, has tapped into the energy of millions of young people to deliver world-changing thought leadership) and Humanity Rising – a new network of more than 400 NGO’s representing +10 million members to date.
A group of 12 high profile thought leaders will be invited to join the event as mentors, supporting the young delegates throughout the process. (One of them is me! – David)
