United Nations and Youth

NYCI has campaigned for youth representation at the United Nations. 

Participation in decision-making is a priority for NYCI and the UN's agenda on youth. One form of youth participation at the United Nations has been through the inclusion of youth delegates in a country's official delegation to the United Nations General Assembly and various functional Commissions of the Economic and Social Council.  Unfortunately Ireland does not have a UN Youth Delegate but NYCI will continue to lobby the Irish Government on the issue.
