The winners will travel to New York in July, and participate in a five day Global Youth Forum hosted by ELS at the campus of UNAI member, Adelphi University. They will work in their language teams to develop action plans focused on the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
On 24 July 2015, the winners will present these plans at United Nations Headquarters in an interactive session in the General Assembly Hall at the United Nations.
