Joint Statement from the MGCY and ICMYO on the Global Youth Call

Dear Friends and youth,

We in the International Coordination Meeting of Youth Organisations and the Major Group for Children and Youth want to welcome this document (The Global Youth Call) as one input into the process for youth in the post2015.

Both networks/coalitions helped developed this document and stand by it. However, we strongly believe that the consensus of youth and governments is reflected fully in the Colombo Declaration on Youth and the MGCY statements to the Open Working Group.

We therefore request that the bases of work going forward is the Colombo Declaration on Youth, the MGCY inputs into the OWG, this document and other documents mentioned today by our friends which all bring together youth voices on key issues.

In this regard we congratulate the SG Envoy on Youth for putting this document together and remain willing to work with him and others in further implanting the outcome of the World Conference on Youth and this ECOSOC youth forum.

Thank you

  1. Youth are the leaders of today and the future; they have a big role to play in the development of their communities and in the future of their countries. Youth are one of the greatest treasures of society, not only for their own countries but also for the world. There has never been a better time to invest in young people than today.
