September also sees the largest-ever gathering of world leaders at the UN General Assembly in New York to sign up to new Global Goals that aim to eradicate poverty for good.
The Youth Summit is a chance for young people to get their voices heard on the global issues they care about. They have the power, commitment and energy to make sure the world delivers on promises made in New York.
