Global Forum on Youth Leadership and Service for Peace and Development
More than 500 young leaders from 40 countries, as well as major world development and corporate partners, participated in the Global Forum on Youth Leadership and Service for Peace and Development, which presented innovative new strategies and partnerships to advance a culture of service around the globe. Session participants teamed up to promote youth participation in fulfilling the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to form international and cross- cultural youth service networks in the region.
The Youth Leadership Track of the 2017 Global Peace Convention inspired, instilled, and uplifted the values and essential leadership qualities required in addressing critical global issues relevant in today’s world.
“It is the openness to dialogue and cooperation that I am happy to see in the work of the Global Peace Foundation.”
