    Consultations on Meaningful Youth Engagement & the 2030 Agenda

    The United Nations Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth is facilitating a youth-led meaningful youth engagement roadmap to the SDG Summit 2023. As part of this process, a series of virtual youth consultations will be hosted between June and August 2023.

    The second virtual youth consultation will take place on Friday, 11 August 2023 from 9h00 to 11h00 AM EDT (New York time).

    The consultation is being organized alongside the Major Group for Children and Youth and the International Coordination Meeting of Youth Organization.

    Objectives of the consultation:
    ● Inform and raise awareness among youth about the meaningful youth engagement roadmap
    to the SDG Summit 2023.
    ● Update youth about progress on key Our Common Agenda recommendations, including the
    establishment of the UN Youth Office.
    ● Gather views and recommendations from youth on key framing questions on meaningful
    youth engagement and the 2030 Agenda.

    The discussion will focus on the following guiding questions:

    1. What are some of the challenges or barriers you have faced or identified as a young person or youth organization, movement, and network, when taking action on the SDGs?
    2. What are key opportunities to enhance youth leadership in SDG implementation, monitoring, and review, in your specific context?
    3. How can youth be better engaged as full-fledged partners in SDG implementation?
    4. How can meaningful youth engagement, in particular of marginalized and vulnerable people, be further strengthened and mainstreamed in SDG implementation, monitoring, and review at global, regional, national, and local levels, including grassroots?
    5. How have you, as a young person or youth organization, movement or network, contributed to SDG implementation or led initiatives on the SDGs so far?
