During the visit to IUT, the UN Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth met with participants of the 2018 Technovation Uzbekistan contest.

During the meeting, Jayathma Wickramanayake shared information about her activities as the UN Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth affairs and work with the youth in Sri Lanka.

She got acquainted with the Technovation Uzbekistan contest and the work of the girls, which they presented within the project.

Jayathma Wickramanayake was impressed with the mobile applications, developed by the girls and wished them good luck. She stressed that the number of girls in STEM is very small and through participation in such projects they create a new history.
