Do you have a vision to want to make this world a better place? If so, join us now at Youth Force 2030 Thailand. We are looking for change makers to connect fellow youth leaders from all over Thailand to exchange their experiences and knowledge, opening new spaces for collaborations and potential new projects. Participants will have a chance to implement their social improvement ideas in the Asia-Pacific region.
Who are we?
As the international community gears itself towards the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, young people’s involvement is more crucial than ever. In Asia and the Pacific, UNDP and UNV are partnering to empower and inspire youth to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. In 2016, the collaboration brought 19 youth leaders from all over the Asia-Pacific region and “2030 Youth Force” was formed.
2030 Youth Force aims to inspire youth to engage in promotion of Sustainable Development Goals and initiate actions to drive positive changes towards an inclusive and peaceful society in Asia-Pacific. Using SDG-16 as an entry point, the network will focus on peace building along with strengthening youth capacities for participation in decision-making with 2030 Youth Force channeling support through three interconnected approaches:
(i) facilitating knowledge-sharing and networking,
(ii) harnessing youth volunteering for change,
(iii) catalyzing youth innovation for social entrepreneurship and sustainable development; and
(iv) enhancing youth leadership for initiation of new actions.
Listening to the voices of youth in the Asia Pacific region on global, regional and national issues is a first step in promoting youth participation for sustainable development. Therefore, anetwork of dynamic youth leaders from the region is essential towards inclusive and peaceful society as well as in realizing the SDGs by 2030.
