The City-transformers initiative has special focus on Goal 11: Make Cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
Goal 16: Promote justice, peaceful and inclusive societies and Goal 17: Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development

Peaceday 2021 – Intergenerational Assembly
21 September, 2021

Join us as we connect youth across the planet.
The Peaceday Youth Alliance is a growing coalition of people and organisations,
collaborating across borders and generations, with a shared purpose to empower youth
to voice their opinions, and take concrete actions towards creating a world that works for all.

Once a year – in connection with UN’s International Day of Peace – we organise a global event on YOUTH IS­LAND – a former sea fort­ress loc­ated a short sail­ing trip from the UN-City in Copen­ha­gen.

On Septem­ber 19, 2020, mem­bers of the Global Youth As­sembly, drawn from al­most 100 cit­ies world­wide, gathered to­gether on the oc­ca­sion of the 75th An­niversary of the United Na­tions, to dis­cuss im­min­ent and im­pend­ing global is­sues. A del­eg­a­tion of youth rep­res­ent­at­ives sailed from Youth Is­land to the UN City in Copen­ha­gen on a Vik­ing Ship, to hand over the con­clu­sions from the Global Youth As­sembly to the world leaders.

This year on september 21, 2021 delegates, partners and supporters of the Global Youth As­sembly will reunite. During a 24 hours program we will catalyse cross-generational conversations between youth groups and global decision-makers on the most pressing topics of our world. The objective is to call for constructive action, bringing the values, imagination and problem solving skills of the next generation to the table.
