In a recorded speech, UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, said the forum was a major opportunity for youth to exchange expertise and create a better future.

“Young people have provided ideas and solutions that help local communities on how to rebuild and get out of the pandemic in a stronger state,” Guterres said.

The youth forum was held in 2017, 2018 and 2019. The fourth edition was scheduled to be held in 2020 but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
