Youth Delegates

Youth Delegates have demonstrated themselves to be of great value to their Governments and Foreign Ministries who benefit from their fresh perspectives, creativity, energy and idealism. Furthermore, are experts on the issues that affect them and are integral to achieving effective and enduring solutions. They have much insight to offer policy-makers.



The International Coordination Meeting of Youth Organizations (ICMYO) is an informal network of membership-based, democratic, representative and accountable International Youth NGOs and Regional Youth Platforms. Our main objective is to strengthen the cooperation of youth organisations at the regional and global levels in order to coordinate policy inputs to the UN and other global youth policy processes.
