Youths for SDGs is a 2-day conference for international high school students to come together to discuss global issues, raise awareness on SDGs, and come up with innovative solutions to ongoing problems. The event will serve as a platform for brainstorming and sharing ideas and networking through activities that will require creativity and problem-solving skills to explore potential and practical ways for young individuals to overcome obstacles to the SDGs, with small to medium-scale action as the main focus.
Youths play an important role in advocating for and achieving the global goals. While major institutions like governments and corporates play a crucial role in solving each of these issues, oftentimes, young people are the ones who decide to take the initiative and action.
All individuals, no matter what age, have an impact towards the society they live in, whether big or small. While people like activists Malala Yousafsai and Joshua Wong, and even the then-teenage entrepreneur Mark Zuckerberg, have changed change the world unique ways, they did not know what was in store for them until they tried. Even the smallest decisions we make in our daily lives affect the world around us in different ways, just as all the problems in the world affect us, both directly and indirectly. Why wait for someone else to change, or for the government to do something? It’s time we create the future we want. It’s time we be the change we want to see in the world.
We are grateful for our past and current partners who works to empower the youths in Thailand.
