Act for Impact: A Global Plan for Youth Economic Citizenship

Together with the Emirates Foundation, Child & Youth Finance International will hold the 4th Global Summit in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, to address key issues and present the latest innovations and achievements in developing a global plan for youth economic citizenship education from practitioners and policy makers world-wide. The Summit will take place under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Abdullab bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Chairman of the Emirates Foundation.

About the Summit:

2015 is a monumental year for the Child and Youth Finance Movement. Youth financial inclusion is priority on the G20 Agenda for 2015, economic inclusion will be a key goal in the post-2015 development agenda, and Global Citizenship Education (GCED) is a primary working topic for global multilaterals. Right from the start, key players have agreed that in 2015 a focus on economic citizenship for children and youth is a top priority. This is a crucial year for the efforts of Child & Youth Finance International in scaling up action and reaching the goal of 100 million children by the end of 2015.

Meeting Objectives

This is the year of global action. The 4th Child & Youth Finance International Global Summit will convene government officials, senior practitioners, innovators and children and youth to address the gap between action and impact. Together dialogues will be accelerated, innovations shared and best practices duplicated. Together concrete steps will be taken to develop a global plan of action for youth economic citizenship.
