Students and Youth lead some of the most progressive movements worldwide, fighting for quality education, fairer societies, and human rights. Youth involvement is key to a sustainable world, and youth voices must be included as co-architects of the future. The criminalisation, side-lining, and dismissing of youth & student organising is an issue that we have seen across our regional contexts. Now is the time to celebrate, honour and amplify the power and place of youth & student activism in achieving gender-transformative, inclusive, equitable, and sustainable education futures.

This event is a space for showcasing, celebrating, and learning from the work done by youth & student activists locally, regionally, and internationally. Youth and students are constantly taking on initiatives that showcase resilience and resistance within their contexts. Youth & students have the power and are leading on pioneering. This event is used to amplify these approaches, lessons, and strategies employed by youth & students who are leading the resistance and building resilience in their contexts.
