Applications for the 2020 Global Goals Summit are now open in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
There are more than 700 million young people in Asia-Pacific, an incredible source of energy and creativity. But although only 20 percent of the workers in the region are between 15 and 24 years old, these young people represent almost half of the unemployment in Asia and the Pacific. The challenge of youth employment is complex and closely related to economic development, child labor, rural livelihoods, urban and cross-border migration, gender, poverty and vulnerability. The tools to address the challenge are equally diverse: education, training, skills development, social protection, self-employment and entrepreneurship, language and technology. So, we are here to solve the youth challenge and solve the world’s problems.
The Global Goals Summit is a place where young leaders from various countries can develop their Global Goals value, have a global impact, act as Changemakers. Entering the second annual session, Global Objectives Summit.
At the beginning of its second year, annual session, the WORLD GOAL SUMMIT aims to create new urban agents and teach urban youth how to join the SDG agenda in their respective countries. With the great theme of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), GLOBAL GOALS SUMMIT offers totally inspiring talks by renowned international experts on the SDGs, exciting cultural exchange sessions and comprehensive leadership training that emphasizes the qualities of the future leader.
All these combined activities will bring together the most excellent 150 young professionals, activists and leaders of the countries of Asia Pacific, which will allow delegates to have an overwhelmingly rich network of contacts throughout the world. In short, this conference would be the best opportunity for world youth leaders in Asia Pacific to expand their influence and provide them with a collaborative platform to achieve their personal and professional goals to be the pioneers of sustainable development in their respective countries.
