Democratic youth organizations want to take responsibility and be part of the solution to the challenges facing our common future. This joint report pinpoints some of the principles that must be present in order for youth participation to be real and meaningful. These principles stem from the work done by LNU and UN-Habitat, as well as by academic researchers. We believe that these basic principles can be applied on every level and in different parts of the globe. Our wish is that this report can inspire civil society, countries and the UN and multi-lateral agencies to integrate these principles in their work.
