Spiritist United Nations Forum

On July 7, 2018 at the Presidential Theater of the Sheraton Tysons Hotel, the First International Spiritist Youth Weekend inaugurated its works with the Spiritist United Nations Forum. Teens (11 to 25) gathered together to discuss an agenda of issues current in today's world.

Beatriz Lopes, 19, host of Kardec Radio for Teens, opened the Forum as its secretary-general. The first action of the Forum was to elect a Spirit mentor for its activity. Unanimously, the youth present elected Jesus Christ for their mentor.

Then, Bia Lopes put to a vote ten current issues, in which three would be discussed. These were the ten topics:

1. BULLYING
2. SUICIDE
3. DRUG USE
4. SMOKING AND DRINKING  
5. GENDER EQUALITY 
6. SUSTAINABILITY
7. POLITICS  
8. GENDER EQUALITY  
9. TECHNOLOGY  
10. WEAPONS

When put to a vote, the Spiritist youth present decided on three major current issues: Gender Equality, Politics and Suicide. The main points of action were summarized in the International Agreement of Action for the Spiritist Youth .
