Third International Conference on SIDS
Youth delegates attend the opening session of the Major Group for Children and Youth Pre-Conference Forum - Towards A Legacy of Achievement, Versatility, Opportunity through partnership and Unity

The Pre-Conference Forum on youth, hosted by the UN Major Group for Children and Youth (MGCY) focused on identifying opportunities for young people from small island developing states to engage proactively in opportunities relating to sustainable development. The forum shared successful, innovative partnerships and initiatives to determine how these could be replicated to address development challenges. Interactive regional discussions took place to foster the development of partnerships within the Africa, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean and South China Seas (AIMS), Caribbean and Pacific regions. Thematic sessions focused on climate change and biodiversity, water and sustainable energy, education, entrepreneurship and employment, and social development in SIDS, health and non communicable diseases, youth and women. The session closed with the adoption of an youth oriented outcome statement that will be used during the main SIDS conference.
