ABOUT THE YOUNG ACTIVISTS SUMMIT
The Young Activists Summit seeks to empower young change-makers advancing sustainability or human rights, and helps them achieve concrete results through visibility, networking, training, and fundraising. Every year, the Summit honours a lineup of young activists from all around the world and their outstanding achievements.
Co-organized by the NGO dev.tv, the United Nations Office at Geneva, Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS), its Genève Vision label, and the Graduate Institute, the Summit provides laureates with a unique platform to raise awareness of their causes among youth and decision-makers.
By bringing together young citizens from all around the world, the Summit aims at reinforcing peace, cultural tolerance, and international cooperation.
Prominent figures and celebrities have taken part in the Young Activists Summit, including UNHCR Special Envoy and actress Angelina Jolie, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nadia Murad, and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet.
