The National Youth Congress (NYC) Organizing Body, founded by the University of the Philippines-Diliman students, marks its 20th year. From Nov. 18-20, NYC will host a face-to-face event at the University of the Philippines Diliman, focusing on the theme “Milestones into Momentum: Twenty Years and Beyond of Fostering an Equitable Nation.”

The theme highlights the significance of economic history in pursuing progress and the vital role of youth in promoting economic equity. NYC 20 urges to reflect on key economic and social transformations to address persistent disparities and inequalities. The theme aims to empower and guide the path toward sustainable, inclusive development, spanning the past two decades and beyond.

Additionally, NYC 20 reintroduces the tradition of a field trip on the third day, offering delegates the chance to visit a prestigious institution and gain real-world insights into development.

The NYC Organizing Body’s mission is to unite its passion for youth development and academic excellence to provide a meaningful platform for the nation’s young minds, and NYC 20 represents a significant milestone in its journey.

This event is co-presented by Globe, Asahi Beverages, The Moment Group, Cravewell Snacks, Y.O.U. Beauty and Komunidad, and sponsored by Allegro Beverage.
