Youth Blast 2013
In September 2013, the UN is hosting in New York a series of key events together with its General Assembly, among them: the 20th Session of the Commission on Sustainable Development which will mark the end of a cycle and the the Inaugural Session of the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.
This important milestone in the follow up to Rio+20 process, is a key time for youth and children to create an action plan on the road to the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
It is vital that we work together to ensure that young people have a strong voice in Sustainable Development negotiations as we move towards a new system.
In order to facilitate that, the Major Group for Children and Youth (MGCY), which is the constituency for the UN Sustainable Development negotiations, will be hosting in the afternoon of September 20th, 2013 another traditional Youth Blast!
