UN and SDGs: A handbook for youth

Guidance and systemization of experiences

As young leaders of tomorrow, it is pivotal that youth are informed and engaged with the global vision for the future. Over the next fifteen years, youth will not only directly experience the outcome of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and plans, but will also be the key driver for their successful implementation. For this reason, it is vital to raise awareness about the recently adopted 17 SDGs and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development among youth, build a platform for discussion, and create the conditions for active engagement. "UN and SDGs: A Handbook for Youth" explores SDGs and the 2030 Agenda from a youth perspective.
