Showcasing and Supporting Youth-led Solutions to achieve the SDGs
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.
SDSN Youth has decided to partner with The Circle of Young Intrapreneurs (COYI) and supporti the publication of ‘Social Intrapreneurship: What It is, why it matters and what it means for you’, a new Report which seeks to provide timely insights on the value that social intrapreneurship delivers to businesses and communities, in order to inform the strategies of all stakeholders involved in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
On 9 November 2017, SDSN Youth co-hosted an official side-event titled “Supporting Youth-Led Innovation to Confront Climate Change: Opportunities for Action”, at the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Bonn, Germany. The eventsought to bring together innovators and those public and private stakeholders whose support is essential for youth skills to be harnessed in support of sustainable development, including governments, international organizations, investors, and financing mechanisms.
