Over 300 hundred delegates attended the Youth Assembly of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization that took place in Dongfang, China, on November 8-12, 2018, under the slogan “SCO Youth against Terrorism and Extremism.”

The event included conferences, roundtables and competitions aimed at exchanging opinions on the topical issues of the SCO. There were also sessions for holistic personal development, expanding young people’s knowledge and perspective, and introducing them to traditional values and culture.

Participants of the Assembly included representatives of the national sections of the SCO Youth Council, the Youth League of the SCO Secretariat in Beijing and the younger generations of the SCO member states.

They discussed pressing international problems, including fight against terrorism and extremism and ensuring security in the SCO.

“Today is a remarkable day, as we open a new page in the history of the SCO,” Rashid Alimov, former SCO Secretary General, said at the opening ceremony. “United by the spirit of friendship and moved by the desire to make your contribution to the joint development of the SCO member states, you, representatives of the young generation, have gathered in Dongfang to affirm your resolute devotion to the Shanghai spirit.”

Leaders of the SCO member states and employees of international organizations sent their greetings to the forum’s participants.

Natalia Gherman, special envoy of the UN Secretary General for Central Asia and head of the UN Regional Center for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia, said that the future of the Asian region and the entire SCO space depended on the involvement of young people in responsible political decision-making.
