The Role of the Youth in the Urban Future

As an integral part of the Sixth Session of the World Urban Forum, UN-HABITAT will host the World Urban Youth Assembly on 2 September 2012 in Naples, Italy (Programme).  The Assembly provides youth with the opportunity to discuss and deliberate on issues important to them, so that they are able to make relevant contributions at the substantive dialogues at the main Forum.

In line with the theme for the Sixth Session of the World Urban Forum, 'The Urban Future', the substantive objectives of the World Urban Youth Assembly will be to analyze how the future of youth in urbanization is perceived, who benefits from the urbanization process, who is being left out, and what innovative approaches there are to remedy such exclusions.

The Assembly is not only informative but also maintains its status as the premier urban youth platform for deliberating on urban youth issues.
