The ICMYO community is committed to forming more effective partnerships with each other and with critical institutional partners. We believe this to be the way forward to achieve lasting change for young people worldwide.
We recognize and celebrate the diversity among us and while we do not expect to have the same priorities nor to always be in agreement with each other, we do recognize that there are many common concerns among us.

International Non-Governmental Youth Organisations
Regional Youth Platforms
Regional Youth Platforms are made up of the National Youth Councils and in some instances regional youth organisations which operate in that particular region. In applying to membership the organisations must indicate the geographic region they operate in and this should be accepted by the wider network.
