About the event
Register now for this virtual Summit, where you will be able to:
- Network with a global community of young innovators, global changemakers, and leading technical experts from around the world.
- Learn about YEO 2030 activities to date, including an interactive global ecosystem map that can be sorted by topic, geography, and activity.
- Commit to take action and advance the social and economic wellbeing of young people, for the achievement of SDG 8.
The YEO 2030 Initiative brings together a global community of youth, youth-led and youth-serving organizations, policymakers, funders, and the private sector to co-design a living strategy focused on young people, the planet, and prosperity. In late 2021, the YEO community—committed individuals and organizations like you—came together in dynamic Solution Sessions and Youth Dialogues to discuss obstacles youth face finding decent work and sustainable incomes and to sketch out ways to overcome them. In January 2022, representatives from 50 youth-serving organizations gathered for a virtual YEO 2030 Regional Convening to reflect on outcomes from last year’s activities and to identify actionable items that YEO 2030 will focus on to advance the achievement of SDG 8.
We are now ready to take the next step—come join us and commit to action!
