Young Voices campaigners contribute to open letter to influential UN panel
In an open letter to the High Level Panel on the post-2015 development agenda, a coalition of young people has demanded that the new agenda is transformative, not just an updated version of the MDGs. Key among their requests is the provision of measures to tackle discrimination and inequality – and an explicit commitment to the meaningful inclusion of the most excluded groups including people with disabilities.
The open letter was put together by a coalition of youth advocates and organisations, including Young Voices campaigners from Indonesia. Their participation helped to make sure that people with disabilities were explicitly included in the coalition’s demands.
