Out of a global youth population of 1.8 billion, approximately half are girls and young women, and they face a double burden as a consequence of not only being young, but also being female. Join the online debate about women empowerment!
Organised by the Office for the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth and UN Women, the event will focus on young women and girls’ empowerment and leadership, and their role in achieving sustainable development and influencing positive change. In parallel, the event will also look at the main challenges that must be overcome to ensure young women’s voices are heard. The panel will feature Ambassadors, UN representatives, youth activists and young professional women.
