We are proud of Julius Kramer and Hilde Thoresen, who were able to deliver statements during the Round table discussions at UNGASS this week.

Julius talked during Round Table 1 , where he raised the importance of prevention as well as highlighted some of the findings from the global youth survey that was produced within the Civil Society Task Force.

Hilde talked during Round Table 3, focusing on youth, their needs and challenges and elaborating on the fact that we do not need one more industry to be able to treat young people as a target market to conquer. Hilde's full statement is available here

We are very happy and proud of them and the whole team! :)

During the UNGASS week, we also produced and communicated infographics, with highlights from young people's and youth organizations' opinions on the 5 UNGASS topics. The infographics are available here
