In 2013, the Permanent Secretariat introduced its official youth program, Leading by Example. Following the morning plenary sessions, students enter into educational workshops and lectures led by the Nobel Peace Laureates, academicians, experts, and students. Topics for the workshops span from principles in leadership to environmental conservancy. The workshops aim to engage Youth in dialogue with the experts.
