The Millennials Movement – TMM is a youth lead organization based in the Latin American and Caribbean that aims to engage citizens and stakeholders in the sustainable development process of their communities, promoting active citizenship and supporting their transition from public policies beneficiaries to change makers and social leaders that co-lead the development process of their communities within their decision makers. Through our innovative GLOCAL and molecular approaches we articulate local action with global and regional processes through medium term programs and initiatives that open spaces for citizens and social actors to learn, articulate with their peers, take action in their community and visualize their contributions towards the accomplishment of the SDG by 2030. Our actions, structure and organizational goals are aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The organization is currently the Co Organizing Partner for the LATAM region at the UN NGO Major Group and the UN Major Group of Children and Youth LAC Regional Caucus Coordinator.
