Youth engagement with APEC issues was restored through our championing of the Voices of the Future.
A raft of practical ways to help solve global issues was delivered to APEC leaders by youth delegates participating in APEC Voices of the Future 2021.
A youth declaration 2021 was presented to the APEC 2021 Chair. To face the challenges ahead, youth delegates in 2021 said APEC leaders must:
- build resilience and ensure equal access to vital medical resources
- improve access to education via technology
- push ahead with sustainability and develop connectivity
- ensure the wellbeing of our environment, society, and future generations.
