The MCYPS seeks to build a MENA region on the collective principles of solidarity, justice, equity, universality, inclusion, human rights, diversity and the integrity of the MENA region.
We strive for a peaceful world where young people and all rights holders in all their diversity are equals in decision making.
We stand for the idea that places where power and influence are most concentrated must recognise and operationalise the importance of the actions and views of young people in promoting the peace and security over the MENA region for present and future generations.
