THE NGO COMMITTEE ON SPIRITUALITY, VALUES, AND GLOBAL CONCERNS NY PRESENTS:
PANEL DISCUSSION – THE ROLE OF SPIRITUALITY AND YOUTH EMPOWERMENT (SDG16)
OCT 25 AT 1:00 -3:00 PM
NEW YORK, NEW YORK
The world’s new compass towards a just and peaceful world – the Agenda 2030 with the Sustainable Development Goals at its core – recognizes the need for multi stakeholder engagement.
A just and peaceful world starts with me, it starts in our families and it starts in the hearts and minds of young people who recognize the opportunity and responsibility of everybody contributing to the common good on local and global level. As we know that “money can’t buy you love” and that pro-social behavior can’t be imposed by law, we are going at our event to explore the potentials of spirituality in guiding young people towards pro-social behavior in their local and global communities. A particular focus will be laid on the role of spirituality in youth engagement for SDG16 which calls for peaceful and just societies with well functioning institutions.
Date: Wed. October 25, 2017 1:00 – 3:00 PM
Venue: UN Foundation 801 Second Avenue NYC Suite 900 (Large Conference Room)

Our youth are not our leaders of tomorrow ~ they are our partners of today.
Their potential to inspire and motivate the global community to commit to a low carbon future is fast becoming legendary. What we need to do now is empower them and turn their potential into action.
We will do this through the power of music!
Music comes from the heart; a language young people understand and speak clearly. It can mobilize unity among their peers, their families, and anybody who is in earshot to listen. This is their indomitable passion to ignite societal transformation.
Music is their magic!
In order to harness this magic in the context of Agenda2030 and Paris Agreement implementation, IAAI and partners are organizing the Global Challenges Youth Music Contest 2017 (#GYMC17) in the context of United Nations Climate Change Conference COP23.
We are excited to invite you to a sneak peek, pre-launch press conference at UNFCCC SB46 . Join us and learn more about the concept, our amazing partnerships, outreach plans and your engagement opportunities for youth, media and other stakeholders.
