The Campaign seeks to show that life is best approached in a spirit of exploration, adventure and enterprise; to influence and better inform attitudes towards risk; to build wider recognition that chance, unforeseen circumstances and uncertainty are inescapable features of life and that absolute safety is unachievable; and to demonstrate that sensible education and preparation enable an appropriate balance to be achieved between risk & safety and achievement & opportunity.

United Nations & Youth
Saturday, 02 March 2013

The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) will convene its Youth ECOSOC 2013, “Shaping tomorrow’s innovators: Leveraging science, technology, innovation and culture for today’s youth” on 27 March 2013, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at United Nations Headquarters in New York.

This event is organized as part of the preparatory process for the 2013 ECOSOC Annual Ministerial Review (AMR) on “Science, technology and innovation, and the potential of culture, for promoting sustainable development and achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)”, and is organized by Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), in collaboration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT), and with the support of “New York Tech Meet Up”.

The key objective of the Youth Forum is to provide a platform for youth to engage in dialogue with various stakeholders to explore possible ways and means for promoting global and sustainable development building upon the potential of Science, Technology, Innovation (STI), and culture.

Key recommendations coming out from the ECOSOC youth forum will be shared with Member States at the High-level Segment of ECOSOC in July 2013.
