Youth Innovation: Crafting solutions to emerging challenges

Join Rotary leaders, members, and guests in Kenya, as we recognise our longstanding special relationship with the United Nations and young leaders who are changing our world.

1000 delegates are expected to attend this year’s Rotary Day at the United Nations, Youth Innovation: Crafting Solutions to Emerging Challenges. UN officials and humanitarian experts will inspire participants to find innovative strategies for addressing humanitarian challenges both locally and globally.

General sessions and workshops will discuss the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the technological revolution, and young people’s role in creating change. A special session on the environment will highlight the importance of sustainable development and offer concrete actions that people of all generations can take to ensure a clean and healthy future.

Six volunteers under age 35 will be honoured as Rotary People of Action: Young Innovators. And for the first time, the event will feature an Innovation Fair where Rotary clubs, businesses, and other organizations will exhibit humanitarian projects and cutting-edge technology that can help address the challenges we face.

1000 delegates from Nairobi, across Africa and around the world are expected to converge on the Kenyan capital for this auspicious event. The day is open to all with an interest in creating positive change in their lives, community and world.
