About Youth Day Dialogues
At Generation Global, we acknowledge it is youth voice and influence in shaping the world of tomorrow. This August, we invite young people to participate in the Generation Global video conferences where their experiences and perspectives on Identity and Belonging, Civic Participation, and Global Citizenship will take the centre stage.
The 60-minute virtual dialogues will be moderated by Generation Global's trained facilitators during the week of August 7th, 2023.

“It was an absolutely amazing experience to be able to connect with different people from all over the world to share our dialogues on what being a global citizen means to us and how it's inclusive to our nation as well. The questioning and overall dialogue really gave me a new vision towards welcoming diversity as a young change maker.”
Reflection on Global Citizenship by a student from Pakistan.
“The dialogue compelled me to dive deeper into the concept of identity and think about what it means to me. It also gave me the opportunity to learn what the term represents to others. It was an engaging experience, where I got to answer questions put up by my peers, share my experiences and understand theirs.”
