We want to help maximize the development potential of youths by facilitating the localization of the SDGs

Our Goals

Create a lasting space for intergenerational and multisectoral dialogue,

and exchange of ideas between the youth, business leaders and entrepreneurs, politicians and policy makers, and other stakeholders;


Empower youth

to analyze local and global issues, then develop and operationalize robust and sustainable solutions, guaranteeing their participation in decision making processes;


Identify specific opportunities

for the youth to contribute to SDGs localization through integrated and inclusive mechanisms, and to collaborate with fellow youth and other existing actors;

Obtain a clear commitment from leaders

to support the initiatives and defined set of actions that have been awarded through the pitch competition;


Build a Global Community of Solvers

to help address the pressing issues related to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (UN 17 SDGs).
