Strongly motivated to become a changemaker in their community and the world

Applications are evaluated based on the individual’s work or involvement, achievements, and interest in sustainable development and the United Nations.

*Please note that becoming a Youth Assembly Delegate/Observer does not constitute an official position as a representative, delegate or ambassador of your country.

The 20th session of the Youth Assembly at the United Nations presents both an enormous opportunity and a challenge to stimulate and ensure youth engagement and participation in achieving an inclusive and sustainable future where no one is left behind.

Guided by the overarching principle of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, “leaving no one behind,” the conference will explore cross-cutting issues and solutions for sustainable development in the social, economic, and environmental dimensions. While youth are among those subjected to exclusion and marginalization, they have the potential to accelerate and achieve sustainable development in their communities and beyond. With their unique sets of skills and perspectives in today’s ever-evolving world, they remain at the frontlines of innovation and change.
