WHEN: 6 September 2013 at 11 a.m.
ORGANIZERS: UNICEF and the International Youth Leadership Academy
WHY: The Millennium Development Goals have benefited children and young people but there is unfinished business to ensure a future world fit for children.

A youth statement on the future they want stemming from this consultation will be presented at high-level conferences towards the end of the year.
