Global Opportunity Youth Convening

The goal of this convening is to create a space for a productive exchange of ideas and to forge relationships among the youth delegates and their allies, laying the groundwork for a long-term Global Opportunity Youth Network.

The Global Opportunity Youth Initiative is grounded in the belief that with access to the right opportunities, young people have the power to spur economic growth and to prepare for the future as workers, entrepreneurs, citizens and community leaders.

This event will provide a chance to directly and consistently involve young people in shaping place-based solutions - especially those young people who find themselves most marginalized from economic opportunities in their countries. This convening will offer an opportunity to engage youth delegates in an action-oriented dialogue with allies, global development institutions, investors, and government champions. 

The Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth has been invited to dialogue and exchange ideas with the youth delegates on challenges and solutions for youth in the labour market.
