Presentation HOPE XXL to the United Nations

Ever since the start of HOPE XXL in 2009 we have had one thing in mind: To present our vision on the future to the United Nations. And it happened on February 3rd, 2015! Directly after the HOPE XXL Global Summit we traveled to the United Nations in New York. There, at the ECOSOC Youth Forum, HOPE XXL was presented to the UN!

Yama, one of the people who have been involved from the beginning, presented HOPE XXL. In a powerful speech he shared our vision on the future with young people and policy makers from all over the world. 

Here's how he summarized HOPE XXL's call to action:
1. We provide a long term vision for the future that not only benefits us but our children and our grandchildren.
2. Let the Sustainable Development Goals be focus points for the next 15 years, but make it part of a long term vision.
3. Our long term vision should be: We strive for all people to grade their happiness and wellbeing with at least an 8 out of 10.
