Global Partnership for Youth in the Post-2015 Agenda

The Office of the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, in partnership with other UN entities, international NGOs, youth groups and stakeholders, launched a crowdsourcing initiative on youth priorities in the post-2015 development agenda. The crowdsourcing initiative, which has been endorsed by the President of the General Assembly, is part of the Global Partnership for Youth that includes over 1,100 organisations from around the world.

Building on the MyWorld2015 survey’s five key thematic outcomes – Education, Employment and Entrepreneurship, Health, Good Governance, and Peace and Stability, the Global Partnership for Youth will use the crowdsourcing initiative to identify youth priorities, and advocate for these to be reflected in the post-2015 development agenda.

“My hope is that the output will feed into the intergovernmental discussions ahead of us,” said the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, Ahmad Alhendawi.
