The vision of the UN Major Group for Children and Youth (UN MGCY) is:
To advance the participation of young people at all levels of governance: locally, nationally, regionally and globally. The UN MGCY seeks to promote the positions of children and youth in policy processes around a number of areas, especially in the protection of the environment, sustainable development, and the promotion of economic and social development.
To ensure that the interests of children and youth are taken into account in planning and decision making processes and that youth, in particular, participate meaningfully; and facilitate the representation and participation of children and youth in the process during, leading up to, and after the Habitat III conference.
Habitat III Working Group aims to ensure that the interests and input of children and youth are taken into account while designing and implementing the ‘New Urban Agenda’.
