We will bring together high-level decision makers, youth leaders and advocates, development practitioners, and other stakeholders to recognize the contribution of youth engagement in shaping the post-2015 agenda and demonstrate and discuss the role of youth in the implementation, monitoring and accountability of the SDGs.

The event will be youth-led and interactive with opportunities for engagement and dialogue with a broad range of stakeholders on this important issue.  Please see the attached concept note for more information about the programme and speakers.
