|International Youth Organizations|
Most youth delegates have a mandate to represent young people from their country by their National Youth Council, as the biggest self-organization of youth organizations and young people in the country. On international level, youth delegates try to cooperate closely with International Youth Organizations which are also represented at the UN based on their ECOSOC accreditation.
International Coordination Meeting of Youth Organizations (ICMYO)
The International Coordination Meeting of Youth Organizations (ICMYO) is an informal network of membership-based, democratic, representative and accountable International Youth NGOs (INGYOs) and Regional Youth Platforms (RYPs).
The main objectives of the ICMYO are the strengthening of the cooperation among youth organisations at regional and global levels and the coordination of political inputs to global youth policy as e.g. the Youth Employment Network (YEN), the World Bank Youth Dialogue and the "World Programme for Youth to the year 2000 and Beyond" evaluation process (WPAY). ICMYO meets at least once a year which is the responsibility of the Taskforce (Pax Romana, World Scouting, WYMCA and European Youth Forum) to organise.
In order to become as representative and inclusive as possible, ICMYO identified regions/countries of special attention in order to get their particular youth perspective also into global processes. ICMYO created task forces for the USA, India, CIS, Brazil and Mexico.
With regards to regional cooperation, ICMYO acknowledged the interdependence of all youth organisations (INGYOs and RYPs) working in the regions and elaborated strategies to coordinate a response to youth needs. A first step will be facilitation of a continuous information exchange between youth organisations working in the same region, followed by a common lobby strategy for institutional support for the consolidation of Regional Youth Platforms.
"Guide for youth NGOs at UN Meetings" published
On Monday, 16th of February 2009, the European Youth Forum with the Financial Support of the European Commission published a "Guide for youth NGOs at United Nations Meetings". Dania Röpke, chairperson of the WFUNA-Youth Coordinating Committee is the author of the Guide.
The Guide identifies and discusses in which United Nations meetings youth can participate and how they can do so effectively. It is mainly intended as a handbook for representatives of Youth Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), but will also be a valuable resource for youth delegates who are a part of their country's official delegation to the United Nations and for anyone else participating at UN meetings. The Guide provides details on the substance, process and outcome of specific United Nations meetings, and explains how outcome documents and final decisions are reached within various UN bodies. The Guide further explains how to qualify for participation at UN meetings and how to prepare effectively. It provides information on possibilities to give input at a meeting, on how to understand and contribute to the negotiation of an outcome document and on how to collaborate with other youth organizations.
