This is a strong signal of the increasing support to the International Non Governmental Youth Organisations and Regional Youth Platforms.

At the top of the agenda there is going to be the issue of consultative mechanisms between youth organisations and the UN system to ensure coherency, consistency and better coordination and the issue of youth rights. More information on the programme of the event will be posted soon.
