At last year's United Nations Summit, world leaders signed up to achieve the Global Goals - a set of 17 promises to end poverty, inequality, and catastrophic climate change. It's the biggest attempt in history to improve the lives of people globally and to protect our planet.
But if we're going to achieve all this, every day counts. That's where young people come in. They are ready and able to make sure the promises made in the Global Goals become reality, starting now.
Young people must be supported to play a lead role in the implementation, monitoring and accountability of these Goals. This is a commitment that was called for at last year's United Nations Summit by Restless Development, together with The Permanent Missions of Denmark, Rwanda and Sri Lanka; the UK Government; the Office of the UN Secretary General's Envoy on Youth, and the United Nations Development Programme.
The Youth Power campaign is driving this forward, supporting the collective power of young people and working with governments and local leaders to ensure the Global Goals are achieved.
Ahead of the High-Level Political Forum in July - a conference at which leaders will review their plans to implement the Global Goals - through its Youth Power campaign, Restless Development is calling for strong commitments to put young people at the heart of implementing and monitoring the Global Goals.
We are encouraging governments, development agencies, foundations, civil society organisations, and other development organisations to make commitments to help ensure young people can take a lead role in the implementation, monitoring and accountability of the Global Goals.
