[HLPF 2023 Side Event] Youth engagement for systemic transformation at the SDG-Summit: Implementing the Global Sustainable Development Report call to actionFri 14 Jul 2023, 1.15 pm
Shaped by their experiences in a rapidly changing world, young people possess their own distinct perspectives on and ideas to address collective challenges. These perspectives often diverge from those held by previous generations. Integrating them into decision making processes is important and contributes to achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda and to delivering on the necessary systemic transformation as highlighted in the Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR) 2023. The GSDR 2023 focuses on accelerating transformation through key entry points, and fully leveraging the interlinkages between the Sustainable Development Goals and their targets for transformative change. It will be launched during the SDG Summit in September.
This side event aims to highlight and discuss key priorities and opportunities by and for youth regarding the recommendations of the 2023 GSDR.
It will serve as a platform for youth to share their perspectives and ideas to achieve the SDGs by 2030.
