2015 Summer Youth Assembly at the United Nations

5-7 August 2015 | General Assembly Hall and Conference Rooms, United Nations Headquarters, New York, USA


For fourteen years, the Annual Youth Assembly at the United Nations has provided an excellent arena for hundreds of youth delegates from over 40 countries to generate partnerships and establish meaningful collaborations with UN officials, the private sector, and civil society.

During this very special year for the United Nations, the agenda focuses on the role of youth in global development as the world defines a new set of goals for the next fifteen years.

The 2015 Summer Youth Assembly at the United Nations will officially open and conclude in the General Assembly Hall at United Nations Headquarters. The summer edition's Lead Endorser is The Permanent Mission of Paraguay to the United Nations, and will feature the most coveted speakers and an international youth delegation interested in new social ventures and STEM fields. Previous speakers have included Amina Mohamed, Corinne Woods, Ravi Karkara, UN Youth Envoy Ahmad Alhendawi, UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova, and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

We would like to invite you to join us on August 5, 6, and 7. Please register on or before Wednesday, July 15, to secure your spot at the most renowned and longest-running youth event on the United Nation's calendar.

We hope to have you with us this summer! Your seat is waiting for you.
