Academy of Global Governance Innovators Launch Event on 23 September 2021

Global Governance Innovators Launch Event The Academy for Global Governance was launched with a fantastic event: the keynote address by David R. Boyd, UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights and the Environment, underlined the importance of human rights in catalysing societal transformations and the role of the youth in such transformation, and talked about promoting youth agency for inclusive institutions and participatory processes. 

The keynote address was followed by a lively discussion based on insightful comments and questions from the audience. 
 
Within the Academy, the students now begin their work on practical projects that focus on youth participation in climate policies. The Academy is grateful for the Young Climate Movement NL, Initiatives of Change and the Centre of Expertise on Global and Inclusive Learning at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, and colleagues at the Centre of Expertise on Global Governance for their cooperation. 

Updates about the project progresses will be regularly posted - stay tuned!
