How do you think youth should engage in the Post-Rio+20 arena? Share your thoughts.
In the Post-Rio+20 arena, things have changed. UN structures to support sustainability are being created, and the role of civil society has changed. We are sitting at a crucial point where we need to define youth engagement in this new context. What are your thoughts? What do you think we should be focused on? How do you think we should engage? We need to hear your thoughts. Complete this survey by 20 November 2012 and tell us how we should be participating.
What's on the sustainable development agenda?
Its all about communication.
Communication is what the makes the world go round. In our society of access to social media, it is more important now than ever to use these resources to strengthen the movement for sustainable development. Do you have communication skills? Can you help with advancing the communication platform of the MGCY to improve youth participation? We need your help. Contact Kiara with your ideas and keep an eye out for the next MGCY Communications Call for November 2012.
What happened at Rio+20? Something to Believe In.
Rio+20 was a momentous event in the sustainable development world and the MGCY was actively involved in many of its processes. Prior to Rio+20, the MGCY hosted the Youth Blast - Conference of Youth, the official conference for all youth in preparation for Rio+20. The MGCY actively participated in Rio+20 itself, engaging in negotiations, delivering statements, providing interviews with media, and platforming the role of children and youth in sustainable development internationally. To find out more information, read our final Youth Blast and Rio+20 reports, watch the MGCY 'Something to Believe In' Declaration, and be inspired to get involved.
