OUR BEGINNING

1992

The creativity, ideals and courage of the youth of the world should be mobilized to forge a global partnership in order to achieve sustainable development.
— Principle 21 of the Rio Declaration 1992
 
 
 

We’ve consulted with 1 billion+ children and youth in more than 175 countries, since 1992.

We regularly hold consultations with youth and facilitates the meaningful participation of youth in the UN processes.

Since our inception, we have directly and indirectly facilitated, coordinated, and trained youth from over 175 countries and territories in numerous forums, including the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development, the United Nations General Assembly High-Level Week, and several other UN engagement avenues. At these meetings and negotiations, we equip children and youth with the knowledge, tools, resources, and platforms with which to identify issues that affect youth and to inform policy processes.
