Youth from across Ireland have pledged to make a decisive difference to the futures of children and their families across the world, in societies both rich and poor.

With UNICEF's support, we are keeping children's rights and well-being on the agenda. At the 2014 "It's About Us" National Youth Summit, young people joined together to raise awareness on the issues that matter most to us - with our government, our schools, our communities, and each other.

“UNICEF Ireland's 'It's About Us' campaign proves the transformative power of youth. I appreciate your support. You provide the hope that there can be a better, safer and environmentally sustainable world for all children.”
UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
