#YAS20

THE WORLD WE WANT

TIME FOR CHANGE

SUMMIT & CAMPAIGN

YOUNG ACTIVISTS SUMMIT

The coronavirus crisis has been a massive disrupter but also an opportunity to rethink the world we want for tomorrow. Young people have the right to demand that the recovery plans they will fund be spent on rebuilding sustainable societies that protect the interests of present and future generations.

On 20 November 2020, World Children’s Day, the Young Activists Summit – held online under the theme ‘The world we want, time for change’ – honoured seven young activists who are advancing climate action, biodiversity, human rights, sustainable & ethical fashion issues.

At a critical time for our planet and humanity, #YAS20 brought together around 9,000 people from 106 countries across five continents for a global live discussion on some of the world’s biggest challenges.
