Welcome Message from Douglas Ragan UN Habtitat

  • Print   On 1 January 1975, the UN General Assembly established the United Nations Habitat and Human Settlements Foundation (UNHHSF), the first official UN body dedicated to urbanization. The first international UN conference to fully recognize the challenge of urbanization was held in 1976 in Vancouver, Canada. In 1996, the UN held a second conference on cities – Habitat II – in Istanbul, Turkey to assess two decades of progress since Habitat I in Vancouver and to set fresh goals for the new millennium. Adopted by 171 countries, the political document –the Habitat Agenda – that came out of this “city summit” contained over 100 commitments and 600 recommendations. On the 1st of January 2002, UN-Habitat became a full-fledged programme of the United Nations.

      As the Head of Youth and Livelihood Unit in UN-Habitat, I believe youth have a large responsibility in bringing about sustainable urbanization. There are more people under the age of 25 today than ever, totaling nearly three billion or almost half of the total global population. These youth live, by and large, in cities and towns; the cities of the developing world account for over 90% of the world’s urban growth and youth account for a large percentage of those inhabitants. It is estimated that as many as 60% of all urban dwellers will be under the age of 18 by 2030.

      The Urban Youth Academy is extremely important in that it will allow youth to learn about sustainable development and to discuss youth’s role in accomplishing it. The UYA will be implemented with a focus on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Urban issues. It will raise awareness of sustainable urbanization and help youth to have a global mind to be a global leader.

      Through Urban Youth Academy (UYA), participants will learn about global issue, how the UN and UN-Habitat deal with these. Based on this perspective on global issues, I hope the participants can advance their global leadership and communication skills so that they can grow as global leaders.
    The UYA will be your first step toward becoming a Global Citizen. UN-Habitat will also do our best to help you there. It is my commitment that UYA will assist its participants in a positive way for the future.
