Youth Leadership Conference @ the United Nations - Bangkok, Thailand

Humanitarian Affairs Asia in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program, the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the UN Inter-Agency for Youth Development and the Royal Thai Government will organise the 8th University Scholars Leadership Symposium (USLS) 2017 at United Nations, Bangkok in Thailand from August 1st to 7th 2017.

 

The theme of the Symposium is “Building LIFE, Giving HOPE”. About 1,000 emerging world leaders in 70+ United Nations Member States will attend this Youth Leadership Symposium at the UN, which focuses on developing young leaders to bring social change.

 

The USLS is a week-long Leadership Conference in Social Development for young leaders from all over the world. The purpose is to instil a sense of social responsibility as well as to cultivate the attributes of selfless giving among our emerging world leaders. The young participants will learn what it means to give back to the community and be challenged to respond to the needs of the marginalized with works of kindness and unconditional service. Delegates will have the opportunity to expand their professional network and understanding of world affairs. They will be motivated to use their knowledge and leadership skills to impact the communities in need.

 

Humanitarian Affairs UK is affiliated to United Nations Global Compact, World Association of Non-Governmental Organization, International Association for Voluntary Efforts and the World Alliance for Citizens Participation.  More information on the program, speakers and fees of the Symposium can be obtained from www.universityscholars.org.uk or at the United Nations information portal :UNITED NATIONS.
