Historically, the Youth Summit on the RTD is first time that the youth had the privilege and responsibility to directly inform the world of their ideas and views will feed directly into the official UN Working Party on the Right to Development as part of its own deliberations.

The Youth delegates, and the youth representative speaker, Kevin Ackermann, also participated in the celebration of the publication of "Realizing the Right to Development: Essays in Commemoration of 25 Years of the United Nations Declaration on the Right to Development" with Mr. Kevin Ackermann, Youth Representative, Ms. Navi Pillay, High Commissioner for Human Rights, Ambassador Mary Robinson, the former President of Ireland, Ms. Nyaradzayi Gumbonzvanda, the Director of the YWCA, Ambassador George Abi-Saab, and Ambassador Tamara Kunanayakam.
