WYA Track A Certified Members are invited to attend the 2012 International Solidarity Forum at the United Nations and World Youth Alliance Headquarters in New York. This year’s ISF will take place from April 16-19, 2012 and will examine the centrality of the human person in achieving human development, particularly in relation to the idea of sustainable development.
Sustainable development is the United Nations’ overarching concept for development and human rights; it includes social, economic and environmental areas of focus. In June, 2012, the United Nations will host an international conference in Rio, in order to revisit commitments made 20 years ago, and to reset the sustainable development agenda for the future. Given the overarching compass of this theme, the commitments made at Rio will influence each area of WYA’s work at the UN in an ongoing way.
