Children and Youth Major Group to UNEP
Formal Youth Engagement Mechanism to the United Nations Environment Programme
A space for children and youth to engage meaningfully in
environmental governance and conservation processes across the UN system
We are the formal youth engagement mechanism to UN Environment Programme and a movement of youth and youth organizations from different parts of world working for environmental conservation. The constituency is youth-led and independent.
WHAT WE DO
We advocate for inclusion, empowerment and meaningful engagement of young people in environmental processes, especially those of UNEP and UNEAs.
This is done through four areas of work: policy-advocacy, knowledge sharing, capacity-building and youth action; and different engagement avenues.
