Thank you for your interest in UNRWA's "Engaging Youth" Stakeholder Conference. New conference-related photos, transcripts, videos, and more are added to the website as soon as they become available, so please allow for a few weeks before our documentation and media libraries are complete.

Youth are the future. The growing proportion of youth within the population of Palestine refugees deserves attention by all stakeholders in order to prepare for future challenges. At the same time, youth represent opportunity and potential, which can be tapped to develop new approaches to difficult problems.

Recent events in the Middle East have clearly shown the potency and potential of youth. Engaging youth is an essential part of building a productive and stable future for Palestine refugees.

These discussions and contributions will open avenues of cooperation and partnership with Palestinian youth and UNRWA. They will also influence the further formulation of the Agency's youth policy.

This conference will take a forward-looking perspective. It will highlight the need to respond to the concerns of youth and stress the urgency of creating opportunities for the younger generation of Palestine refugees. The fundamental fact remains, however, that a just and lasting solution must be found to the refugee question in the context of peace negotiations. This solution must be the just result of a political agreement between the parties in line with UN resolutions, with the support of the international community, and in consultation with refugees themselves.
