Aiming to provide space for the next generation of leaders to contribute to the Summit’s discussions and conclusions, the Permanent Secretariat of the Community of Democracies, together with its active partner CoD YouthLeads, and European Democracy Youth Network, will convene a Youth Assembly for the Summit for Democracy (Assembly) on the margins of the Summit.

The virtual Youth Assembly for the Summit for Democracy will bring together 18- to 35- years old representatives for an online conversation with high-level global representatives, including the Biden Administration and civil society. The Assembly will provide democracy leaders an opportunity to deliver their messages to youth and pose questions to young people about their views regarding democracy. A series of interactive discussions will focus on the future of values-based multilateralism and present an opportunity for youth to voice their broader set of democracy priorities and to welcome and inform the initial session of the U.S.-led Summit.
