Introduction to the course

The Summer Online Global Youth Forum is a three-week immersive experience, consisting of live sessions, group activities, knowledge-sharing and remote networking gatherings. The aim of the Forum is to explore the critical role that young people can play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Participants will engage in constructive debates on youth participation in achieving the SDGs and in practical workshops on how to support achievement of the Goals in their local communities. The Forum will include a "Youth Leadership Lab", with international trainers and coaches, to help participants unleash their potential and develop their soft skills to bring about change. The initiative will also be an opportunity for participants to meet and establish contact with youth leaders, heads of UN entities, international NGOs, businesses and other key stakeholders working to achieve the SDGs.
