About the UN General Assembly
From 25 to 27 September 2015, world leaders from 193 countries will convened at the UN Headquarters in New York.
At this assembly, leaders agreed on the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 17 new Sustainable Development Goals – which succeed and expand on the Millennium Development Goals - set out an ambitious framework for combating poverty, inequality, and injustice.
Three young WAGGGS delegates – from Malaysia, Madagascar, and Sweden participated in this historic event and used the opportunity to speak up for girls’ rights and call on leaders to prioritize girls’ needs, and to involve girls in the implementation of the new Sustainable Development Goals.
