As part of on-going activities for the forthcoming UN World Youth Report 2013, the UN Focal Point on Youth organized a Google+ Hangout on 6 March under the overarching theme "Youth migration and development: towards sustainable solutions."

The web-based event offered an opportunity for youth and key stakeholders to discuss the issue of youth migration and development. The panel of experts shared practical strategies for enhancing the development potential of youth migration while mitigating associated risk in the migration process (i.e. pre-departure/departure, in-transit, arrival, post arrival, return or no return). Furthermore, the nexus between youth migration and key issues such as access to basic social services, social integration and inclusion, remittances, migrant rights and the post 2015 development agenda were discussed.

Panellists for this Google + Hangout included:
Bela Hovy, Chief, Migration Section, DESA's Population Division
Jo Rispoli, Regional Specialist on Labour Migration/Migration and Development (East and Southern Africa), IOM Regional Office, Pretoria
Daniel Pettersson, First Secretary, Permanent Mission of Sweden to the United Nations
Lonneke van Zundert, Youth representative
Dynka Amorim, young immigrant activist and founder of Bué Fixe Magazine.

This Hangout was moderated by Michael Boampong, DESA's Division for Social Policy and Development.
