Y-Action is the hub for World YMCA advocacy work. Each one of the sections above reflects one of the 4 core strategic pillars that are part of the World YMCA’s global strategy. The YMCA-RGE is the first pioneering group that is part of Y-Action.Click on the green square to enter RGE space!
The YMCA RGE is an international advocacy team of YMCA members from diverse national movements around the globe. The group seeks to promote the environment and sustainable development within the YMCA, help coordinate programs and actions among member branches and create a global voice for the movement on these issues. Through engagement with the UN and other international organisations, the RGE aims to ensure that the YMCA and the youth have a say in global processes and frameworks.
The group was set up by the YMCA delegation after the United Nations World Conference on Sustainable Development: Rio +20 in 2012, with support from the World YMCA. It meets online on a weekly basis and has represented the World YMCA at the annual UN Climate Change conferences since COP18 in Qatar in 2012.
