Peaceday 2021 – Intergenerational Assembly
21 September, 2021

Join us as we connect youth across the planet,
to explore how we can turn the crisis of the pandemic
into an opportunity for global renewal.

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.

The epi­cen­ter of the Global Youth Assembly was YOUTH IS­LAND – a former sea fort­ress loc­ated a short sail­ing trip from the UN-City in Copen­ha­gen. Since the fort­ress was handed over to the Dan­ish Scouts five years ago, it has been trans­formed into a unique gath­er­ing place for young people from all over the world. On Peace day, Septem­ber 21, 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.
