Representatives from twenty-three global youth networks convened at a two-part GHFutures2030 Youth Consultation hosted by Wilton Park and co-authored a statement on the health futures youth want. They also adopted a strong Call For Action which urges stakeholders to take action towards strong governance of the digital transformations in health with youth meaningfully and intentionally involved at every level.
The network will bring together young people under the age of thirty to build a movement dedicated to digital health governance inspired by the needs of children and young people.
