Third UNESCO Youth Forum will precede the General ConferenceThe third Youth Forum* will be held at UNESCO Headquarters from September 26 to 28, with about 150 under-30 delegates from some 100 countries and 30 Non Governmental Organizations expected to participate.
Their discussions will focus on three themes. The first of these - education for sustainable development and freshwater management – will encourage young participants to consider new strategies to combat ignorance on environmental issues. The second – youth and HIV/AIDS – will examine preventive education methods. The third – UNESCO and youth: ways and means of communication and cooperation – will sum up the results of the previous two Forums and propose new forms of collaboration between UNESCO and youth**.
