For the first time ever, I am running a crowdfunding campaign in order to attend the "8th ECOSOC Youth Forum" that will take place between 8-9 April 2019 at United Nations Head Quarters in New York.
"The Forum will serve as a unique space for young people to share their vision and elaborate their substantive contributions to United Nations upcoming meetings, including the 2019 ECOSOC Substantive /Session, the 2019 high-level political forum on sustainable development (HLPF) and the high-level events taking place on the margins of the opening of the opening of the General Assembly, including the Climate Summit, the High-level Meeting on Financing for Development and the SDG Summit."
I have been invited by the UN and will attend from Cyprus under my capacity as one of the 17 UN Young Leaders for SDGs.
My objectives will be to:
- Share our experience of using entrepreneurship as a peace-building tool and its contribution to SDGs.
- Share the opinions of Cypriot youth about economic and social issues in every scenario.
I am fundraising to cover my basic expenses (accommodation, local transport and food) during my visit to UN for the 8th ECOSOC Youth Forum in NY.
In addition, I would greatly appreciate your opinions as young members of the community so please DM me your opinions regarding economic and social issues so that I may address them at this forum!
Thanks so much for your support!
