SDG Resources for Youth!

SDG Resources for Youth!

Youth are at the forefront of progress and innovation. Around the world today, there are approximately 1.2 billion young people aged 15 to 24 years, accounting for 16% of the world’s population (UN Global Issues Youth n.d.). As one of the fastest growing populations, young people everywhere are uniting together to drive positive change, responding to complex challenges, such as climate change and gender equality. As an example, Greta Thunberg protested outside the Swedish parliament in 2018 at only 15 years old, sparking a global movement of school-age students demanding greater action from governments to fight against climate change. Fridays for the Future, a global school strike started by Greta Thhunberg’s actions continues today. Inspired by youth leadership, millions of young people continue to  speak up for climate action, governments are increasingly pressured to tackle the problem.
