UN Women attaches great importance to the role of youth in achieving women’s empowerment and a ‘Planet 50-50’ by the year 2030, also a key step towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. This interaction will strengthen initiatives for empowerment of young women and develop young men as partners in all efforts to ensure gender equality, women’s empowerment and the protection and promotion of women’s rights.
