Youth Forum 2019
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.
The pre-ICM Youth Forum is organized by young people, for young people. The main organiser, which has been active throughout the GCM process of consultations and negotiations, is the United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth (UNMGCY), the United Nations General Assembly-mandated, official, formal, and self organised space for children and youth to contribute to and engage in certain intergovernmental and allied policy processes at the United Nations. The UNMGCY includes a Migration Working Group of the UNMGCY, which is currently the only official platform for youth to engage in the GCM implementation, follow up and review.
To ensure that the event is youth-led, youth organisations as well as individuals below 30 years of age are invited to engage in program drafting and program implementation through the GCM Youth Working Group, facilitated by the United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth (UNMGCY).
