Global Events & Partnerships
The SDGs are truly audacious goals, and we believe that achieving them requires strong teamwork. It doesn't matter what you - if you are working towards sustainable development, and want to work with young people - let's explore what we can do!
We can amplify your work with our youth network and/or broader SDSN network of academic experts and partners. Running training programs? Do you fund youth solutions? We're always looking for opportunities to share.
Tap into a community of passionate young people. It's important for us to design for the next generation.
How does the SDSN Youth Executive Team select the member organizations?
The selection process consists of a criteria list:
Who does the SDSN Youth Membership Program work with?
Universities, academic and cultural institutions, university teams, student associations, youth-led organizations, research institutions, community initiatives, and digital platforms.
What are the benefits of joining the Youth Membership Program?
What are some of the opportunities Member Organizations have as part of the program?
The partnership will identify, mentor, and unlock youth-led social entrepreneurial projects for the SDGs in selected IB students and educators around the world.
Co-hosted by SDSN Youth and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (PASS), the Vatican Youth Symposium (VYS) brings together youth leaders and experts to strengthen the global movement for sustainable development.
Traditionally held at the Casina Pio IV in Vatican City, the 2020 VYS will take on a virtual format due to the constraints of the global pandemic. While we will miss convening within the walls of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, and the ability to connect in-person, this virtual format has granted us with the opportunity to reach an even greater audience.
