In 2015, 17 Sustainable Development Goals were agreed by 193 UN Member States to shape the global agenda for sustainable development in the next fifteen years and beyond.
Achieving these goals will require an unprecedented mobilization of the energy and skills of young people, and recognition of their significant role in promoting them.
The Youth Solutions Report, a flagship initiative of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network - Youth, features 50 game-changing projects led by young people, allowing them to showcase their work, and presenting them with opportunities to draw interest from potential supporters.
With the help of an Advisory Panel comprising world-leading experts and a vast network of partners and opportunities, we strive to advance youth involvement in the realization of the 2030 Agenda while celebrating the invaluable contribution of young people to sustainable development.
On the occasion of the 2018 Geneva Challenge, the SDSN Youth Special Prizeis awarded in partnership with the Sustainable Development Solutions Network - Youth (SDSN Youth) to the project "Enhanced Sustainable Concrete: Combining Existing Technologies in a Novel Manner to Promote the Sustainable Development of Water and Concrete Industries Worldwide".
SDSN Youth today announces at the Vatican Youth Symposium the launch of the Youth Solutions Hub (YSH), an online community-building platform that connects youth innovators working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with mentors, tools and resources that can help them scale their solutions.
The second edition of the Youth Solutions Report, which identifies 50 youth-led projects that aim to solve the world’s toughest issues, will be released on July 16 in New York during a launch event at the headquarters of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network.
