The 79th UN General Assembly (UNGA79) is proud to announce the Science Summit Youth Parliament, a unique opportunity for young individuals aged 13-22 from around the globe to engage in critical discussions about AI regulation and its broader impact on scientific collaboration and societal dynamics.
This Youth Parliament is designed to amplify young voices in AI and data regulation discourse, focusing on vital areas such as ethics, privacy, accountability, and the societal ramifications of emerging technologies. Recognising the typically limited representation of youth in these crucial conversations, the summit seeks to empower the next generation to share their insights and visions.
We strongly encourage youth with hands-on experience in AI and data technologies, particularly those involved in academic research, to apply. Eligible participants must be available to attend the event in New York City on September 14, 2024, from 09h00 to 17h00EST.
Selected participants will be expected to present a well-prepared speech on one of the following topics: engineering and technology, biological and health sciences, astronomy and physics, chemistry and biochemistry, mathematics, environmental science and engineering, or material science and engineering. Each topic will feature four students delivering a 3-minute speech. Furthermore, participants will engage in a stimulating debate, discussing current issues, educational challenges, and youth engagement in their respective fields.
This is a call to young visionaries to lend their voices, share their ideas, and shape the future of AI regulation and science cooperation. Your participation could pave the way for meaningful change and enhanced youth involvement in global science policy.
Speakers will be responsible for any costs associated with their participation.
