In a dramatically changing Arab world, youth are increasingly involved in and committed to defending human rights and protecting their freedom.

Operating from regional offices around the world, the World Youth Alliance has finally arrived to the Middle East, and will be officially launching the Beirut-based regional office on February 2, 2013 at the UNESCO Palace.
The ceremony, entitled “Behind the UN Curtains” will include speakers from the founders and international board members of WYA and will address these as well as some of the most pressing questions pertaining to today’s youth, their role in impacting policy and WYA’s goal in helping them better understand and articulate the fundamental role of the dignity of the human person in policy and culture.
