18th International Solidarity Forum
March 6 @ 8:00 am - March 20 @ 10:00 am
The International Solidarity Forum is an annual training event hosted by WYA at the United Nations in New York City. The forum brings together certified WYA members from around the world and subject matter experts to participate in discussions and workshops on topics relevant to ongoing international policy debates. The conference takes place both at WYA’s headquarters and at the United Nations and is WYA’s annual training event for its members.
The 18th Annual International Solidarity Forum will examine the theme of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia. WYA has noted with particular concern the growing pressure related to physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia. Delegates will examine the “right to die” and what is required to respect each person’s dignity in end-of-life care in light of law, policy, and practice, with a special concern for the protection of the vulnerable.
