Youth for Inclusion Summit 2019

2 December, 2019 @ 12:00 am - 4 December, 2019 @ 11:59 pm UTC+8

Youth for Inclusion 2019 was the pioneering Regional Youth Leadership Summit for the Special Olympics Asia Pacific Region as part of the Lead to Include Project. Participants from 14 countries met in Singapore to discuss and brainstorm and discuss the importance of “Creating Smart Societies” in the region. Smart societies are cities and communities that are not merely tech-driven, but also inclusive, people-first, and community-centered.

Today, young people with or without intellectual disabilities struggle with discrimination and inequality. Youth for Inclusion sees the potential of young people to utilize technology to address these commonly faced issues. By adopting an issues-based approach, Youth For Inclusion participants were able to discuss and create innovative ways to promote inclusion on the following topics:

  • Addressing bullying and isolation
  • Strengthening mental health and wellness
  • Increasing post-school opportunities
