Involving Youth as a Catalyst in achieving the 2030 Agenda

Involving Youth as a Catalyst in achieving the 2030 Agenda

As we all know that the global 2030 agenda is the agenda for all of us. It gives us a pathway to promote sustainable development and providing a better world for our future generations. And we all know that we have to act to achieve this agenda.

The youth which is considered to be the most passionate one driving force of any nation, needs to be ignited to play their role as a catalyst for speeding up the localization of SDGs. Youth needs to be mobilized and in my opinion there should be research projects on SDGs assigned by the educational authorities to get innovative ideas generated by our young ones. The youth must be involved in Policy Dialogues where members from different youth committees can sit together and define a solid framework to carry the global 2030 agenda. Social Entrepreneurship sessions must be planned aiming to equip the youth with techniques that can help them to generate a self-sustainable idea. There is a need to create Youth Forums on 2030 agenda so the process of localizing the 2030 agenda can be made more easy and successful. The government should develop some kind of Action Plan on 2030 agenda to mobilize the youth and let them give an opportunity to come out of their shells and do something better for their community.
