Putting youth at the centre of the agenda

We live in an era with the largest ever youth population. Many organisations want to tap the insights of the millennial generation, particularly as they are the inheritors of today’s policies. The awareness of climate change, sustainable development and justice is higher amongst this group than any other.   In 2015, Oshun delivered a Youth Summit in the heart of Whitehall to facilitate young people’s conversations with leaders, working to their agenda. The event was extremely rewarding for politicians, policy makers and the young people who took part – creating a social media storm about the Global Goals that leaders at the United Nations in New York could not fail to listen to.
