In achieving our mission, we have been working effortlessly to engage with one of the most important stakeholders in the world, youth. WFUNA believes that youth, as civil society activists, have the power to be significant actors of positive change. Through our global education and youth programs, we have been reaching out to our youth constituents by providing them with the opportunity to experience and build skillsets to shape our future in a more peaceful and sustainable way.
Our goal in addressing this event is to encourage engagement of youth in global issues by providing them with a core set of skills that are fundamental to becoming effective social activists, responsible leaders, and creative visionaries.
