Youth as an Engine of Change

Achieving a demographic dividend is a key ingredient to achieving the ICPD Programme of Action overall. In many countries, harnessing a demographic dividend can offer major solutions to myriad challenges facing young people today, including access to education, ability to enter the workforce, and ability to save for old age. But countries cannot harness the demographic dividend or achieve the ICPD PoA without the meaningful involvement of young people at every stage in the process. This session will therefore seek to highlight the roles that youth can play to help their countries realize the ICPD Programme of Action, with a specific focus on actions they can take to harness the demographic dividend.
