As part of the MyCity+20 global youth initiative, a diverse group of youth came together in New York City on April 27th, 2012 to assert our common commitment to a healthy and sustainable world. NY+20 inspired youth to become involved in the UN processes that impact their futures. At the end of the meeting we established a “Youth Statement” with four critical areas for action ahead of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (also known as Rio+20) and call for world leaders to implement the following commitments.
We will be presenting our “Youth Statement” at a side-event for at the UN Headquarters on April 30 from 6:15 – 7:45 PM during the UNCSD second informal-informal negotiations on the Zero Draft of Outcome Document of UNCSD. We have twenty-five passes for the side-event.
