The UN Sustainable Development Summit will take place on 25-27 September and world leaders will gather in New York to adopt the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is the culmination of several years of work and negotiations on the post-2015 framework.
The UN Major Group for Children and Youth are trying to make sure that their priorities are communicated in the corridors, side events and roundtables at the Summit, even as they celebrate the adoption of the Agenda.
Prior to the UN Sustainable Development Summit, the UN MGCY will host a Children and Youth Hub! Throughout the last years UN MGCY have co-ordinated a large amount of blasts and the Children and Youth Hub will be the last one before the next era of implementation, monitoring and review.
The objectives of the blast are as follows:
…ensure that youth attending the Summit have the latest information about program, logistics and other relevant information in order to ensure a meaningful participation in the Summit;
…ensure that all attending youth have the insight in the process and latest technical discussions about the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as well as the youth priorities;
…develop a joint youth advocacy and visibility strategy for the Summit;
…discuss the future of the UN MGCY and its participation in the implementation, monitoring and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The Hub opens on 20th September in the evening, with an inspiring and productive programme throughout 21st and 22nd September. Participation is free. It will take place at The New School and is open to up to around 300 participants. They are required to bring their laptops, cameras, posters if they want. Lunch will be provided for all participants.
Organising Partners of the Hub
The event is hosted by UN MGCY and supported by The New School, UN DESA and the European Commission, as well as the Office of the UN Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth and the International Chamber of Commerce.
