Malala Day Youth Assembly

On July 12th 2013, young leaders from around the world convened at the United Nations in support of the United Nations Secretary – General’s Global Education First Initiative. The objective was to ensure that all children, especially girls, are in school and learning by the year 2015. The main event was the youth assembly held in the Trusteeship Council Chamber where Malala Yousafzai celebrated her 16th birthday by addressing hundreds of young leaders who support education for every child. The day also marked the start of a youth movement where the youth representatives from around the world advocate for global education.
