The Meeting will consolidate global urban youth perspectives towards the New Urban Agenda through a full-day programme of intensive and participatory consultation, resulting in clear messages supported by wide audience.  This third and last PrepCom is the ideal moment to consolidate the diverse concerns, priorities and potentials that the future urban generation shares.

Children and youth are not only the majority of rural-urban migrants but often also comprise the majority of population in rapidly urbanizing developing countries.  The percentages of young people living in informal settlements, experiencing poverty, or without sanitation or clean water, are usually higher than the overall population.  They are at the forefront of the world on the move, and have high stakes in a paradigm shift towards sustainable and inclusive urban development in the next 20 years. In addition, active participation by urban youth can energize and contribute to the overall success of the global conference if they are engaged in substantive policy debates.  A self-organized pre event is one of the best ways to encourage their participation.
