Soirée Youth We Can

The Youth We Can! (YWC!) Evening is a key moment for Convergences, which receives up to a 1,000 youths every year. This evening aims to create the spark that would encourage the youth to mobilise at their level and inspire young social entrepreneurs and committed personalities. To encourage the youth, the speakers will share their experiences as actors of change. This 5th edition will follow the steps of the Conference of Youth on climate change (COY11) Manifesto and the Sustainable Development Solution Network (SDSN) Youth Solution Report. It is at once a working base, a lobbying tool or a source of inspiration for the youth who want to get involved.
7:30pm-9pm – Conference

La Soirée Youth We Can! (YWC!) est un moment clé de Convergences qui accueille chaque année presque 1 millier de jeunes. Cette Soirée vise à créer l’étincelle et encourager les jeunes à se mobiliser à leur échelle en puisant l’inspiration dans le parcours de jeunes entrepreneurs sociaux et de personnalités engagées. Afin d’encourager les jeunes, les intervenants partagent leur expérience d’acteurs du changement. Cette 5e édition aura comme fil conducteur le Manifeste de la Conférence des jeunes pour le Climat (COY11) et le SDNSN Youth Solution Report, qui sont à la fois des bases de travail, des outil de lobbying ou d’inspiration pour les jeunes qui souhaitent se mobiliser.
