The United Nations Student Leadership Conference on Development
is happening now! Students from Mexico, the Democratic Republic
of the Congo, and the United States are currently in New York at
the United Nations communicating and working together through
cross cultural capabilities. The students have opened their day
through a video conference with students in the cities of
Chennai, India, Mexico City, Mexico, British Columbia, Canada,
and Makati in the Philippines. Over the weekend, the students
have been working diligently to put together a plan of action
involving continuous global issues (including global citizenship,
education for all, sustainable development through environmental
responsibility, food security and human rights) and their
original and creative solutions to these pervading problems.
Currently, we are honored to have UNICEF's own Zayn Abaakil
speaking and answering questions surrounding the purpose and
motives behind the media platform, Voices of Youth, and how
through this technological opportunity, we are able to connect
with the youth of the world! The hope of the world rests in your
hands, and we are so excited to see the outcome of these
students' ideas, passions and actions. Onward!
