The 2018 theme is Youth Entrepreneurship: A Force Towards Inclusive and Sustainable Growth.

The UNCTAD Youth Forum 2018 offers the opportunity for youth to

  • exchange views and experiences and strengthen a network of future leaders from different places in the world ;
  • have
    an interactive dialogue with global players involved in the achievement
    of the Sustainable Development Goals where youth can raise awareness on
    issues they consider of major concern and that they want to see
    included in the international agenda;
  • learn more about UNCTAD’s work and projects with youth and have a discussion on how to get youth further involved.

The
first ever UNCTAD Youth Forum took place during the fourteenth
Ministerial Conference (UNCTAD 14) in Nairobi, Kenya in July 2016 where
250 youth from over 70 countries participated.
