SDSN Youth

Who We Are

Young people make up nearly half of the world’s population, and they are the ideal agents to be at the forefront of the sustainable development movement. Launched in 2015, SDSN Youth is one of the world's biggest networks of young leaders working together to accelerate solutions towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  

The programme aimed at leveraging youths' power to shape a more sustainable world for future generations through education and resources.

Youths can connect, collaborate and exchange ideas through Global Youth Programs and Regional/National Networks to amplify the impact on the global community.

What We Do

1. SDG Student Program

A global network of student hubs of learning and engagements for the SDGs and to build solutions for solving local sustainability issues. SDG Student Hubs are institution-based, and each is led by an SDG Coordinator. The hubs will work to spread the message of SDGs to all staff and students of the institution and create pathways to take action in the university community.


2. Seminars

Networks of SDSN Youth run regular seminars for discussion and knowledge exchange on issues around the SDGs. The seminars aim to equip youths with knowledge of particular SDGs, to highlight youths’ role in addressing the issues, and to create pathways for them to act.

3. Other Events

The network runs events to engage youths in serving the community as they learn about the SDGs and to collaborate with others in making an impact. Example of past events include plogging along the hiking trails and climate simulation workshops.
