VIRTUAL DIALOGUE SERIES WITH NORTHEAST ASIAN YOUTH

Young people have the potential to build peaceful societies and support effective governance in their communities, now and in the upcoming decades. Training youth to collectively imagine the future of their region can ensure lasting impact and create the conditions for dialogue and cooperation between governments and peoples of Northeast Asia for the generations to come.

The United Nations Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs (DPPA) in partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), convenes young people aged 18 to 35 to “Futuring Peace”, a Futures Dialogue Series starting in July 2021.

“Futuring peace” is a series of virtual dialogues dedicated to the role of youth in the future of Northeast Asia in 2060. Designed and led by young champions from the region, the dialogues will enable young people to share their visions for Northeast Asia in several decades, by considering the following:

  • What are the likely and desired futures of young people in Northeast Asia?
  • What role will young people play in this future society?
  • What will be the opportunities and challenges posed by new technologies?
  • What will relations between generations look like?

The Dialogue series are co-designed and co-facilitated by Youth Champions trained in digital facilitation and Futures Literacy - an approach which, by sharing ideas of the future, shapes strategies to innovate.

Dates of the Futures Dialogue (a three-part series)

  • 28 July 2021
  • 6 October 2021
  • 27 October 2021

What is Futures Literacy?

Futures Literacy is a capability that allows people to better understand the role of the future in what they see and do today. We will be incorporating this literacy throughout our Futures Dialogue.
