Event description

Description

In 2015, 17 Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by 193 UN Member States. The SDGs will shape the global agenda for sustainable development for the next fifteen years and beyond. Achieving these ambitious 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 innovators in business, charity, research and academia, allowing them to showcase their work and presenting them with opportunities to draw interest from potential supporters. In addition, the Report explores the multiple challenges facing youth-led innovation for the SDGs, and proposes a set of concrete recommendations that can help create more integrated ecosystems of support for young change makers.

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.

Join us for the launch of the 2018 edition of the Youth Solutions Report, and be the first to learn about this years cohort of solutions!
