The UNICEF-led #IMAGINE initiative is joining forces with action/2015, a coalition of nearly 1,000 organizations from around the world that have come together to influence world leaders and inspire collective action in advance of key global agenda-setting meetings in 2015. These include the Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa in July, when governments and their partners will produce a global strategy for financing global development; the UN General Assembly in September, when world leaders will set out new development goals for the next 15 years.

"It is our duty to imagine a better Mexico, at peace and full of opportunities for children and adolescents. We imagine that it is possible to live without violence. We dream it will come a time when life is not a nightmare for children" said Isabel Crowley, UNICEF Representative in Mexico.
