Young Leaders and Youth Advocacy: Changemakers
Description: Recent decades have observed a surge in the number of youth that participate actively in addressing global and domestic issues. As youth advocates, they have represented the best interests of their fellow youth, cooperated with senior leaders in their respective communities, and spearheaded resolutions to complex socio-economic issues such as the lowering of the voting age. The DIYC Movement strives to empower future young leaders by helping them consider the value of youth activism and advocacy in the 21st century.
Date: 18 December 2021, 3pm – 5pm
