On Saturday 12th September, hundreds of young people gathered in London at The Youth Summit to help shape the future of our world.
In Late September, world leaders will sign up to new Global Goals to end poverty – The Youth Summit gave young people a chance to have their voices heard on the global issues they care about. Young people will be instrumental in delivering these Goals and making sure the world keeps its promises to end poverty and climate change for good. Designed by young people, for young people, the summit was held at the Department for International Development in partnership with International Citizen Service.
