‘Meaningful’ youth involvement in decision-making critical to sustainable future: Guterres

A just, equitable and sustainable future for all will simply not be possible without the involvement of the world’s 1.2 billion young people, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said in a policy brief published on Thursday.

The report calls for expanding and strengthening youth participation in public policy making and decision-making at all levels, to realize the promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

A ‘driving force’ for change

The UN chief emphasized that youth are key to identifying new solutions for the breakthroughs that the world urgently needs.
