From the Young Americas Business Trust (YABT) we offer continuous and permanent youth consultation processes with the purpose of actively involving the largest number of young people from all over the hemisphere, in their capacity as social actors who, through their recommendations and initiatives, contribute to nurture the debate on OAS processes.
The I Meeting, hand in hand with the VI Young Americas Forum, has strengthened the participation of the youth of the hemisphere through a hybrid methodology, providing content, various dynamics of interaction, networking, and workshops to more than 1,000 young people from the continent, who represented their communities, youth networks and youth interests both online and on-site. This methodology has made it possible to integrate the contributions of youth in a broader and more inclusive way to the priorities of the region.
These contributions have been compiled and systematized through the I Report on Youth Contributions of the Americas 2022 (content available only in Spanish). Said contributions and results of the program are part of the inputs on the road to the next Cities Summit of the Americas, in Denver, Colorado, in 2023, which will allow youth to consolidate actions and proposals to implement and expand the commitments of Hemispheric Economic and Social Development at the local level.
