Young people should be consulted on the major issues that face the world, according to a youth delegate at a UN conference on the post-2015 development agenda.

The international community is currently defining new targets which will replace the Millennium Development goals or MDGs at the end of this year.

Twenty-three year old Mahishaa Balraj, who is from Sri Lanka, says it's important that young people's views on the future are heard.

Stephanie Castro spoke with Ms Balraj and asked her about the type of world she wants.
