UN Major Group for Children and Youth (UN MGCY)
IMCS is one of the most active organizations within this UN General Assembly mandated space. The UN MGCY is a platform that allows youth-led and child-serving organizations participate in certain official UN intergovernmental policy processes. At the moment, IMCS is active in almost every process in which the UN MGCY participates, namely the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, the SDG indicator process, the UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development – Habitat III, the follow-up work around the UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, the work around the financing for development process, the World Humanitarian Summit, and others. IMCS has participated in meetings, preparatory committees, side events, panels, and consultations around these critical processes. The IMCS UN Advocacy Team continues to engage a number of IMCS regional coordinators and members in the UN MGCY’s work in these processes.
