Ulaanbaatar Rocked by Youthquake; Future Declared Bright

July 17, 2019

By Tracie Yang

It was two days of debates, workshops, comedy, multimedia, and music in the capital of Mongolia, as hundreds of young people descended on Ulaanbaatar in mid-June for the first-ever Youth Voices Summit.

Then Mongolian pop star Uka brought the party.

The takeaway? Respect one another, protect the environment, be informed, know your rights, and participate!

“Youth Voices” was supported by the Asia Foundation’s Mongolia office in cooperation with seven NGOs including the Caritas Czech Republic, International Republication Institute, Mitchell Foundation, Mercy Corps, World Learning and World Vision.
