About the event
This event will provide a platform for youth to enhance their knowledge on current global and regional challenges to meet the humanitarian needs, facilitated discussions on youth contribution to humanitarian actions, and a space to allow the views of youth to be incorporated into the UN Secretary-General’s report and the overall recommendations for the World Humanitarian Summit. The event will also foster increased collaboration between youth organizations in reaching a resilient and sustainable society where the humanitarian needs are meet and prevented.
The WHS Youth Summit will be a 2 day activity with a scheduled mix of plenary speakers, breakout discussions, voting exercises, engagement with remote participants, skills-building sessions. All activities associated with the conference program will be developed and structured by the Organizing Committee with advice/input from the Planning (Advisory) Committee. The event will consist of formal plenary sessions and technical sessions but will also include time for informal presentations and networking based on the ‘unconference’ format. This will allow for spontaneous, participant-driven sessions.
