SPARKING CONVERSATIONS & CONNECTIONS AMONG YOUTH.
Global Hangouts (GH) is a platform that facilitates cross-cultural dialogue about global issues with youth from around the world. From 2013-2015, more more than 2,000 young leaders from 145 countries meet once a month via Skype to discuss global issues. Each month, members of the Youth Working Group (YWG) decide on a topic and develop a list of questions pertaining to current global events that fall within UNESCO’s purview.
In 2017, Global Hangouts will partner with Global Youth Case Competition to create opportunities for changemakers to connect, collaborate, and create together on the topic of gender equality in education. We will also bring in experts and guest speakers for a Global Hangouts: Live Panel.
