 After three years’ endeavor, EACT won the authorization of acting as the Sole Agency in China on behalf of the Youth Assembly at the United Nations from 2009 through 2014. EACT is specifically responsible for setting up a youth delegation with selected outstanding youth from Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions and Taiwan Province.         

11th Youth Assembly at the United Nations

August 1-3, 2012

This summer at the UN Headquarter, the Chinese delegation reached the burning point-3 teams passed the semi-final and got into the final presentation in the "Resolution Project".

The Resolution Project is a global non-profit organization, fostering youth leadership development by promoting social entrepreneurship among college students like yourselves or those in your groups. The Resolution Project is a pathway to making an impact today - and a perfect complement to the Youth Assembly conference experience, which is already some of the best training available to emerging, global youth leaders.

Finally, the Chinese team with the project addressing the problem of the Disabled Children and Family in China won the 3rd Prize, which awarded the team $1,500 as resolution grant and provided on-going metorship by experts for them to carry out this project and make impacts in China.

10th Youth Assembly at the United Nations

January 20-21, 2012

The 10th YA specifically featured several youth-delivered speeches emphasizing the responsibility and vision of today's youth and tomorrow's leaders. The Chinese youth delegation reflected that they also greatly enlarge their horizon and sincerely feel that they are assuming more heavy duties now, which not only involve local issues but global problems. For instance, the Chinese delegates paid great attention onto how the US schools and communities make great use of energy and conduct effective recycling system. In their reflection papers, they showed that they are very passionate about leading the "Energy-saving and Going-Green Initiatives" in China. They would love to do trival changes from the very local community and their schools. Gradually, they hope to extend such an action and change to the whole world with the help of youth from other countries and regions.

9th Youth Assembly at the United Nations

August 3-5, 2011,

This summer, 188 young Chinese delegates, were divided amongst a 3-week, and 2-week journey where ten chaperone teachers, dozens of staff and volunteers together witnessed the monumental success, meetings and campus visits, etc.

While valuable agility staggered the room, people in the US were amazed with their bright ideas and ardent passion. Heated discussions still echo in the Conference Room at the UN and Missions’ Offices; inquisitive faces linger in the infinite hallway of MIT and grassy Tercentenary Theater at Harvard Yard; fervent cheers resound after the Cultural Night across Brooklyn Bridge; and collaborative teamwork spirits spread everywhere.

The YA journey allows much wider space for youth delegates, tomorrow’s Leaders Today, to encounter and challenge to build the courage to understand the Millennium Development Goals.
