ABOUT

JOIN THE DISCUSSION,
BE PART OF THE ACTION.

About youth for SDGS: Youths for SDGs is an academic event that focuses on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and works towards being a part of this universal call to action. Students will be given the opportunity to network and share ideas, as well as capitalize on their creativity and problem-solving skills. This year because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the event will be hosted online. There will be two parts to the event: Breakout Sessions and Case Challenge. The theme of this year is sustainable development goal number three; Good Health and Well-being. 

Breakout Session allows participants to explore different themes of SDGs for an interactive discussion of current global issues and ways to achieve the SDGs. The goal of the discussion is to come up with a creative and feasible solution to the topics under each theme. Case Challenge presents each team of three (as registered) with a real-life case for them to apply the principles of sustainability. A case problem related to a SDG will be given to the teams in the morning, whose challenge will be to devise a creative and feasible solution. The aim of this event is to spark creativity in youth in the application of sustainability. The Case Challenge consists of a preliminary round and final round.

This will be an One-Day even hosted on March 12, 2021. Our finalists will present their case to the esteemed guests and judges who will select their winner based on how sustainable their solutions will be including other categories.

OUR CORE TEAM

GET TO KNOW US!

We’re a group of undergraduate students from different universities and backgrounds passionate about driving change for our society. We’ve had many different opportunities to learn about social issues in our undergraduate years, whether it be through exploring Sweden’s waste management techniques by spending an exchange semester in Stockholm University or learning about local sustainability practices in Thailand’s rural areas. Although we have different experiences and backgrounds, one thing that we share in common is our passion for changing the world for the better, in the ways we can. We strongly believe in the power of youth in being the drivers of future change. As we have gotten numerous different opportunities to learn about social change, we wanted to extend this opportunity for younger youths to learn more about social issues in their highschool years. Being aware of global and local issues is the first step to being the solution to them in the future. We would like to empower youths to know that everyone is capable of contributing to achieve the SDGs within their spheres of influence. Therefore, we teamed up to initiate this event, making this effort truly for youths, by youths.

OUR YOUTH LEADERS

MEET OUR YOUTH LEADERS

As an attempt to include youths in our efforts of creating the event, we opened up the opportunity to high schoolers who are already familiar with and passionate about social issues to help lead this event with us. We proud to present to you our 16 youth leaders, from different international schools, who share the same passion for solving social issues. They would be leading the discussions in the Breakout Session and activities in the Sustainability Quest. And we’re thrilled to be collaborating with them. Hearing about the creative ideas they have in store, we can’t wait to share it with you!

The fundamental flaw in our bid to save the planet is the belief that it is someone else's responsibility. Society has never learned to spare this planet and acts as if there's a possibility to migrate to another planet.
