Aida Hadzialic to visit New York and speak at the United Nations

Published

Minister for Upper Secondary School and Adult Education and Training Aida Hadzialic is travelling to New York today. On Friday she will speak on Sweden’s youth policy focus in a panel in connection with the 20th anniversary of the UN World Programme of Action for Youth to the Year 2000 and Beyond (WPAY).

WPAY provides a policy framework and practical guidelines for national action and international support to improve the situation of youth around the world. It includes 15 priority areas and contains proposals for action in each one of these areas. Ms Hadzialic has been invited because of Sweden’s international reputation in the area of youth policy and young people’s rights.

The programme in New York also includes school visits. On Thursday morning Ms Hadzialic will visit West Side High School, known for its commitment to socially excluded young people, where the principal will host a tour and talk about the school. In the afternoon, Ms Hadzialic will visit Renaissance Charter High School for Innovation, a school with a broad approach to innovation and extensive use of digital technology.
