Increase youth voices on SDGs for the Global Day of Action

To celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on 25 September, we are excited to share with you some incredible actions of our partners to celebrate the Global Day to #act4SDGs across the Asia-Pacific.

Youth for Sustainable Impact (YSI) is a youth-led organization working to capture voices, opinions, priorities, and views of people to affect the development agenda and policy-making in India. Kishore G, YSI founder, has a great passion to raise awareness and promote SDGs in India. Following his participation at the Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development in Bonn 2018, Kishore returned to India and established his own youth organization to promote the MY World Survey across India. YSI will visit numerous schools and talks to students about SDGs on 25 September. Using fun activities such as SDGs games, community problem-solving, career guidance and life lessons, experience sharing sessions, YSI plans to collect opinions of Indian youth through the MY World Survey as well as to provide them knowledge and skills on SDGs. More information on  YSI’s action can be found here.
