About the Strategy

Youth2030, the first-ever UN system-wide strategy on youth, guides joint UN action for and with young people globally.

What is Youth2030?

Youth2030 acts as an umbrella framework to guide the entire UN as it steps up its work with and for young people across its three pillars – peace and security, human rights, and sustainable development – in all contexts. It seeks to significantly strengthen the UN’s capacity to engage young people and benefit from their views, insights and ideas. It seeks to ensure the UN’s work on youth issues is pursued in a coordinated, coherent and holistic manner.
