The Young Americas Dialogue will bring together young leaders representing dozens of youth networks in the hemisphere, committed to actions to enrich the debate around the construction of an integrated response to deal with the COVID-19 around the Americas. The Young Americas Dialogue with the Secretary General of the OAS, Luis Almagro, culminates a hemispheric process of face-to-face and virtual consultations, through which there were thousands of youth contributions and recommendations related to topics that fall under the Inter-American Agenda and others of interest to the youth.

At the same time, this activity is the starting point towards the VI Young Americas Forum, a permanent and inclusive platform for the participation of youth as social actor in the processes of the IX Summit of the Americas that will take place in 2021.
