The Young Americas Forum

Since 2005, the Young Americas Forum is the official platform for the participation of young people in the Summits of the Americas processes; providing a permanent, open and inclusive channel for youth to proactively contribute to the definition of priorities and mandates in the region.

At each Forum, young people prepare, discuss and adopt a Youth Declaration of Commitment related to the themes of the Summit; while making concrete recommendations to governments, they also set a hemispheric agenda for the follow-up to agreements reached the Forum.

In parallel, through the Talent and Innovation Competition of the Americas www.ticamericas.net, participants present innovative solutions to the region's most pressing issues; through this process young people not only share opinions to their Governments but also take on action in responding to hemispheric challenges and to the Sustainable Development Goals - SDGs.
