The United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth is the UN General Assembly-mandated, official, formal and self-organised space for children and youth (under 30) to contribute to and engage in certain intergovernmental and allied policy processes at the UN.
We act as a bridge between young people and the UN system in order to ensure that their right to meaningful participation is realized. We do so by engaging formal and and informal communities of young people, in the design, implementation, monitoring, follow-up, and review of sustainable development policies at all levels.
Our areas of work include 1) Policy and Advocacy. 2) Knowledge, 3) Youth Action, and 4) Capacity-Building.
