The speech was delivered in the context of UNESCO 9th Youth Forum in Paris, October 26th to 28th of October 2015.
The forum, which is held every two years, is considered a global flagship event where some 500 participants from different youth-centered and led organizations meet. In addition to diplomats, policy makers and UN officials.
The speech, about the Syrian civil society, is dedicated to the forgotten activist men and women whose tired faces are rarely present in international avenues. To them, I dedicate these words. To Ayhamn Ghazoul for always and forever.
