The young leaders participating in the World Youth Conference on Kindness organised by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UNESCO) has pushed for a declaration calling upon the governments to declare the UN International Day of Kindness for Humanity.

“A key outcome of the conference was the adoption of a declaration led by the youth – calling upon governments to declare the UN International Day of Kindness for Humanity,” said a statement.

The second World Youth Conference on ‘Kindness for Peaceful and Sustainable Co-existence’ was organised by the UNESCO Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP).

It was organised to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations (UN) and to highlight the central role of youth in policy development and decision-making.

The conference provided global youth leaders and policymakers with an innovative and engaging platform to discover innovative pathways for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), build the social and emotional capacities in the youth, and enhance the momentum for a new UN International Day of Kindness for Humanity.

The Global Youth Alliance for Kindness, created as a key outcome of the first World Youth Conference on Kindness in August 2019, presented a new 2020 Global Youth Declaration on Kindness (GYDK) calling on governments to give them more opportunities to achieve the SDGs.

The event was addressed by youth leaders such as Maria Toorpakai Wazir, peace, education and gender rights activist and world ranked squash player from Pakistan, as well as senior policymakers such as Leslee Udwin, human rights advocate and activist, Stefania Giannini, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Education, Renata Lok-Dessallien, UN Resident Co-ordinator India, Vishal Sharma, Ambassador of India to UNESCO, among many others.
