Annual YOUth ACT Conference

Our initiative arose out of a collaboration of the Amsterdam-based Amnesty and Unicef student teams in 2019. Our objective was to showcase Amsterdam-based initiatives and provide insight into the means of social and environmental change. During our two-day YOUth ACT conference with fascinating keynote speeches, hands-on workshops, and unique networking opportunities, we looked at a diverse range of human rights and social justice topics through a practical lens. Our five conference themes, namely Business and Finance, AI and Big Data, Environmental Justice, Global Health and Education for Integration, allowed us to connect students with diverse backgrounds and interests. The opportunity to interact with inspiring changemakers thought leaders and youth activists was made possible through our collaboration with groundbreaking local initiatives, such as the Forward Incubator, She Matters, Our Bodies Our Voice, Right2Education, Universities Allied for Essential Medicines, LCOY, Amnesty International and the UN Youth Representative for Human Rights and Security. With over 100 participants, we successfully mobilized a highly motivated and proactive global community of potential change-makers who shared their aspirations, diversified their network and gained insight into the wide range of skills and creative mindset necessary for impact making.

Stay tuned for our second conference in spring 2020!
