UNESCO Youth Forum

UNESCO Youth Forum

MIT App Inventor will be participating in the UNESCO Youth Forum “Youth for Change” conference in Paris, France, October 26-28, 2015. As the Manager of Educational Outreach and Business Development, I will be speaking about new MIT App Inventor initiatives and opportunities for educators and young people to participate in, contribute to, and benefit from mobile computing education.

The Youth Forum takes place every 2 years and gathers exceptional young people ages 18-24 from UNESCO member states, to speak about their involvement in youth-related issues at a local, community and country level. This year the theme centers on sustainable development and climate change.

In addition to hearing how young people are tackling local problems and mobilizing resources, attendees will also hear from various experts from organizations and projects around the world. Past participants have included representatives from Mozilla, Intel, FOSSFA, FOSSASIA, Orange, All Dev Camp, Technovation, The MASH Project, Apps for Good, Esprit, m:Lab East Africa/ eMobilis, Nairobi Dev School and MIT App Inventor.
