Borders have a vast impact on young people fleeing arduous situations, seeking new opportunities and respect for their rights. They are forced to flee, exposing them to sexual and gender based violence, abduction, exploitation, forced recruitment, detention, hunger and death.
Despite their difficult situation displaced young people can and should play an important and positive role in shaping their future and establishing sustainable peace worldwide. Technological advancements have brought forth opportunities to empower, educate and train young displaced people. The main objective of the dialogue taking place in Reykjavík on 10/10 will be shedding a light on this highly important role of young displaced persons and the valuable contribution of entrepreneurs and activists in creating positive change will be one of the main objectives of the dialogue taking place in Reykjavík on 10/10 2018.
