We are a dynamic, international network of young people and organisations bringing about change in the world. We care about the future, the sustainability of our planet and we are here to represent the voices of children and youth globally. At the UN and in our local communities, we are changing the way the world works. We are designing the future.
We collaborate. We work together to achieve goals because we are a stronger voice when we work together!
We're serious about what we do
The vision of the Major Group for Children and Youth is the advanced participation of young people at all levels; locally, nationally, regionally and internationally, in the protection of the environment and the promotion of economic and social development.
The mission of the Major Group for Children and Youth is to ensure that the interests of children and youth are taken into account in the planning and decision making processes, and that youth in particular participate meaningfully in the CSD-processes.
- To advance the role of children and youth within the CSD and related processes;
- To facilitate dialogue and collaboration within its constituency, resulting in group dynamism and unity in diversity; and
- To encourage and support dialogue and collaboration between Major Groups and civil society at the CSD.
How we work
Over the years, the Major Group for Children and Youth have learned ways to continuously improve the way we function. A key learning was that we need a framework, a guiding set of principles that all members can operate by. So, we developed the Processes and Procedures document which was a collaborative effort of the Major Group. Please read the document so that we can all act from a common set of goals and principles, and some of them are highlighted below.Impotence Medication viagra online need to taken with medical guidance.

In addition, we believe the best way to work is by collaborating as much as possible. We have created a number of working groups so that people with different interests, skills and abilities can get involved. At the moment, all focus is on Rio+20 so all working groups are engaged in this. For more information about these working groups and how to join, check out our Rio+20 page.
