The IFRC Global Youth Conference is a meeting which gathers youth leaders from Red Cross Red Crescent Societies from around the globle. The first edition was held in Vienna, Austria (2012) and marked the first steps of the formation of the Youth Engagement Strategy. A year later, right before the IFRC Statutory Meetings, the second edition of the Global Youth Conference was held in Sydney, Australia and focussed on the adoption and excecution of the Youth Engagment Strategy in national context.

The Global Youth Conference provides an excellent opportunity for youth leaders to share and to acquire new experiences, knowledge and skills in adressing humanitarian challenges.The conference is great platform to discuss the humanitarian challenges that we are facing, as well as identifying opportunities for greater engagement in our Movement through regional networks and partnerships with other youth organizations.
