 UNA-USA GEOS program recognizing International Youth Day, “The Activist Generation, the U.S., and the UN.” You can watch a recording of the program here: 
 
 
 From Cynthia and Dustin’s discussion about youth priorities and engagement with the UN to our featured speakers sharing more about the lifesaving work of UN agencies, we hope you feel educated, inspired, and mobilized to get more involved in addressing global issues.

As Dustin said, “Youth engagement is not a ‘nice-to-have,’ it’s a must-have;’ where the United Nations is not just a stage, but a training ground for future world leaders, and a world where young people are not only judged by what they have done but what they can do and will do if given the opportunity.”
