Sustainable Development Goals
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
Thematic Focus The focus of the session will be building understanding with the participants on what are SDGs, how they relate to us as individuals, youth, innovators, professionals and future change-makers. The session also aims towards developing ideas of how innovation can be used for achievement of SDGs by young people.
The session will be an interactive space with facilitator led discussion, Group activity on Break-Out rooms, Polls, Discussion and exchange of ideas through online discussion forum.
