Many of you will have seen profiles of certain people popping up on the blog over the last couple of days. Esra’a, Pete and Lina will be just some of the five hundred 20-somethings from all 192 countries debating the big issues. The event takes place in East London at the ExCel Centre from Feb 8th – Feb 10th.
I’ll be there for WHYS throughout, updating you with blogs and videos on the big issues (LINK) and how the delegates are getting on with the global issues at hand – the Environment, Interfaith Dialogue and The Role of Global Business are the subjects for the first day. There are 6 sessions over 2 days, and the delegates will pass resolutions based on what they’ve heard from the counsellors.
On the last day (10th), World Have Your Say will hold a special ‘7th Plenary’ at 6pm GMT. This is where you’ll get to hear, and speak to, the leaders of tomorrow.
I’m speaking to a few of the delegates as I write this, and they’re a pretty diverse bunch, which is great. They all come from different backgrounds, but they’re all hoping to achieve the same thing – change for the better.
So keep across the blog…you’ll see more profiles of the delegates, follow WHYS on Twitter from the event from next Monday and feel free to chat to the delegates through this blog.
