The Young Americas Forum

Since 2005, the Young Americas Forum is the official platform for the participation of young people in the Summits of the Americas processes; providing a permament, open and inclusive channel for youth to proactively contribute in the definition of priorities and mandates in the region.

At each Forum, young people prepare, discuss and adopt a Youth Declaration of Commitment related to the themes of the Summit; while making concrete recommendations to governments, they also set an hemispheric agenda for follow-up to agreements reached at the Forum.

In parallel, through the the Talent and Innovation Competition of the Americas, participants present innovative solutionsto the region's most pressing issues; through this process young people not only share opinions to their Goverments, but also take on action in responding to hemispheric challenges and to the Sustainable Development Goals - SDGs.
