YOUTH FOR GLOBAL GOALS The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a longterm framework of 17 objectives to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Adopted by 193 member countries of the United Nations in 2015, this is the first development agenda which requires strong engagement not only from the governments, but also the private sector and regular citizens. Young people, representing a quarter of the world’s population, need to be strong partners in the achievement of the SDGs. AIESEC was the first youth-led organization to align its operations with the Agenda 2030 and create its own SDG initiative during the Youth Action Summit that AIESEC hosted at the United Nations Headquarters in December 2015 - Youth 4 Global Goals. Youth 4 Global Goals aims to mobilize youth towards the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. Our initiative aims to educate youth about the SDGs and provide practical volunteering opportunities to unleash their potential while being active world citizens. We focus on developing their leadership skills and providing a platform to act towards issues they are passionate about. Since 2015, Youth 4 Global Goals has built a strong network of young people passionate about making a positive change. Our simple Awareness - Understanding - Action framework allows us to engage with youth in different ways. As of August 2018, Youth 4 Global Goals achieved the results listed to the right: Youth 4 Global Goals has also managed to foster significant partnerships with governmental organizations, international and public partners, as well as with private sector. Examples for partnerships at the global level include PwC, Electrolux, Asian Development Bank, Yidan Foundation, OPEC Fund for International Development, UNIDO, UN Habitat, Plan International, and Project Everyone among many others.
