The attention of the Geneva action and the marches in 2019-2020 will be to have young people bring forward the grievances of the most marginalized, with the intention of finding constructive ways to address and engage with the United Nations organizations for creating a more peaceful and just world.
The four areas of constructive engagement with people and the United Nations are:
(1) reducing poverty,
(2) decreasing social exclusion,
(3) improving ecological harmony, and
(4) halting conflict and violence.
Within each of these four areas, the issues emerging from the grassroots are represented, and also the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can be identified.
The United Nations agreed in 2015 to pursue Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that re-introduce people, not profits as the center of international development. It sets 17 targets to be reached by 2030, for all 193 countries that are signatories.
While the Jai Jagat Campaign Committee values each of the SDGs, the contention is that if people at the grassroots, are not consulted by their Governments and not involved in realizing the SDGs, then they will not be concretized. It requires people’s “bottom up” engagement and problem solving that will lead to sustainable solutions.
