Unstoppable Together – Main Event

After two years of investing in and supporting youth-led solutions to address the negatives effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on young people in their communities, the Big 6 Youth Organizations, funded by the World Health Organization (WHO), through the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, and the United Nations Foundation (UNF), this session is a celebration of the Global Youth Mobilization (GYM) initiative, looking back over the last two years of youth-centred global action, investment and leadership now and in a post pandemic world!
