The opening ceremony of the 2013 OYW Summit- skip ahead to 13:00 to see MR. Annan’s opening remarks.
More than half of the world’s population is under the age of 30. Young people tend to be hardest hit by the world’s inequalities and injustices. Their voices often go unheard, even though they will inherit the consequences of decisions made today. The Kofi Annan Foundation fosters dialogue and leadership among young people by offering a platform where they can express their ideas and propose solutions to major public issues.
