CTV News Reported:

This year, a group of more than 100 students and prominent young activists from around the world are “taking over” the UN headquarters to make their voices heard.

They include former child soldiers, advocates for the disabled, and those fighting for a cleaner planet. They are delivering speeches and meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and UNICEF’s director Anthony Lake, calling for actions that will build a better world for kids.
