Hosted by GYM and the Big Six, join us for this side event, Powering Change: Young People Leading the COVID-19 Response and Recovery, at Stockholm+50. The session will include a panel of young people to showcase youth-led solutions in their communities and will include a discussion with youth policy development practitioners and policy makers on lessons learned since our start in 2020.
Powered by the Big Six Youth Organizations and supported by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Foundation (UNF), the Global Youth Mobilization (GYM) aims to address the negative impact of the pandemic on young people and support them to build back better.
