The goals of the Youth Assembly at the United Nations are to…

Strengthen commitment to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals;

Some background: At the Millennium General Assembly in 2000, all Heads of State created and unanimously agreed to work toward the accomplishment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). But it is the people of each country that must come together to take action to see that these goals are achieved and that we can finally live in a New Millennium that we are proud to bequeath to future generations of all nations.
