The Civil Society and Indigenous Peoples' Mechanism Youth, as one of the CSM working groups, presented their vision draft, proposing an inclusive perspective on the participation and rights of young women and men in the current human rights-based policy dialogues:
We the Youth constituency of the CSM gathering smallholders and family farmers, indigenous peoples, fisherfolks, agricultural and food workers, women, landless, consumers, pastoralists and urban food insecure defend the explicit recognition of the different constituencies within youth. As contributors to the economy and communities Youth entails a plurality of understanding, experiences, knowledge and expectations towards the future. We are political subjects and have the right, capacity, and agency to build spaces of solidarity, inclusion, and dignity. We learn from and exchange with different struggles, movements, institutions and alternative voices. Through practicing and sharing our diverse knowledge and cultures, including indigenous knowledge and practices we build resilience against growing corporatization while co-creating life-affirming worlds and futures by building strong connections to the land, water, seeds, plants, and all living beings.
