The ECOSOC Youth Forum 2022 brough together young people, decision-makers, development partners and stakeholders and amplified youth voices on the theme of the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) 2022: ‘Building back better from COVID- 19 while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda’.

Side events included the session ‘youth perspectives on collective action for sustainable development’, hosted by the United Nations Development Programme to create a space for the diversity of young people to exchange ideas and experiences of youth-inclusive partnerships in development and to inform UNDP’s work with and for youth.
