Capturing the voices of young people at the World Youth Conference

Engaging with adolescents and young people and discussing pressing issues they face in their lives is the goal of UNICEF’s participation in the World Youth Conference in Mexico.

Approximately 106 million young people between 15 and 24 years of age live in Latin America and the Caribbean region and they account for about 20 per cent of the total population. Together with the government of Mexico, and partners from UN agencies, academic institutions and NGOs, UNICEF is organising multiple activities for young people from the region during the one week conference in Mexico.

Migration is a central issue for young people in Central America. There is evidence of an increasing numbers of children and adolescents migrating on their own, often in a desperate effort to rejoin missing parents. These children face a variety of serious risks.
