|Samar Mezghanni, writer and activist, speaks at the ECOSOC Youth Forum|
Today and tomorrow marks the UN's ECOSOC Youth Forum. The Youth Forum brings young leaders from around the world to the UN Headquarters in New York. It is a platform for youth to engage in dialogue with Member States and contribute to policy formulation on global economic, social and environmental issues. The forum will discuss ways in which young people can play an active role in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It will also address how the youth can best communicate on the Agenda, bringing on board the innovative use of social media and communication tools.
Three members of the WAGGGS UN Team will be here at the event representing WAGGGS! Tune into the @WAGGGSDelegates on Twitter to follow us live, and you can watch on UN Web TV here: http://webtv.un.org/
