WATCH THE 2023 SUMMIT again!


The 2023 Young Activists Summit honoured five young activists at the United Nations in Geneva during a live event with the participation of Prince Albert II of Monaco. The five Laureates received donations to carry out field projects, on the occasion of the 2023 Young Activists Summit.

Around 20,000 participants from 144 countries participated online in the Summit which focused on peace and reconciliation. It was moderated by Trisha Shetty, founder of the NGO SheSays, and Vogue India’s Woman of the Year. It saw the performance of Niki Black, who sang “Imagine” a cappella as a message of peace.

2023: Peace & Reconciliation

At a time when wars, climate change, biodiversity loss, and human rights violations seem impossible to solve, #YAS23 puts the spotlight on young activists who successfully bring about peace, reconciliation, and sustainability.

The 2023 Young Activists Summit Laureates share their solutions to reconcile humans with nature, to build peace whether it be once conflict has broken out, to make peace with a hostile family, or even with oneself (i.e. sustaining good mental health).
