The UNESCO WHEC2022 Youth Platform is officially launched!

You are invited to join us in the World Higher Education Conference Youth Strategy, participating in a range of dynamic activities including calls, webinars, masterclasses, consultations, and podcasts, among others.

The WHEC2022 (Barcelona, 18 to 20 May 2022) recognizes youth as game-changers contributing to the redefinition of higher education and its future demands. UNESCO calls for youth participation by means of dedicated youth programming that will: (i) empower youth from every background in order to leave no one behind; (ii) spark mutual inspiration among youth and the higher education community; (iii) involve youth in a co-building process of redefining higher education.

The WHEC Youth Platform presents diverse opportunities for youth participation (before and during the Conference) and will remain active after the WHEC2022. Users will have the opportunity to attend online masterclasses, seminars, open discussions and forums, and participate in surveys, consultations, and calls for entrepreneurs, artists, and researchers, among others. At the same time, they will enjoy fresh, digital content uploaded regularly, such as higher education talks (HED Talks), podcasts, video messages by youth leaders, blog posts, etc. In addition, the Youth Platform contains all the information regarding the WHEC2022, and users can subscribe to a newsletter to stay tuned on the Conference and all youth activities.

All youth are encouraged to register on the platform and join us in the process towards the WHEC2022!
