The leaders of the world’s Least Developed Countries are coming together to shape a new action plan to achieve a better, more sustainable future for all in LDCs. This will have an impact on the lives of millions of young people and it is their right to have a say and share their ideas, hopes and commitments.

The International Committee Meeting of Youth Organisations (ICMYO) and the Major Group for Children and Youth (MGCY), facilitated by the United Nations, coordinated the creation of a Youth Declaration titled “For All Generations”. This document is the result of a series of consultations with as many young people as possible from the Least Developed Countries to represent their vision and initiative.
