Our Activities

Translation of SDSN Youth material

The network successfully translated the “Application form” and the “Membership Guide 2021” from English to Italian. This will facilitate the understanding of the membership program by youth-led organizations.

Mapping expertise and initiatives

The network developed a database of SDSN Youth member organizations from the Mediterranean, best practices, and projects being implemented that align with the SDGs. The goal is to empower organizations.


SDSN Youth Mediterranean partnered with Liceo Vittoria Colonna of Arezzo in Siena, Italy to host a webinar celebrating the UN international days of water and forests. In addition, the network partnered with Students for Sustainability at the University of Brescia, Italy to raise awareness on the UN Agenda 2030 and the SDGs during the fifth edition of the “Sustainability Festival on Garda”

Mediterranean Youth Solutions Report 2021

This past quarter, SDSN Youth Mediterranean launched the regional edition of the global SDSN Youth Solutions Report. The goal of the project is to collect and showcase innovative solution projects on the SDGs led by young people in the Mediterranean region and present them at the 19th Meeting of the Mediterranean Commission on Sustainable Development (MCSD).

Action on SDG 11

Following the outcomes of the 92nd International Session of the European Youth Parliament (EYP) 2021 on SDG 11, the network plans to develop inputs and proposals in collaboration with SDSN Youth member organizations from the region to empower youth-led innovative solutions for the SDG 11.

Networking event for Member organizations

In June, SDSN Youth Mediterranean plans to host a virtual networking event for member organizations from the Mediterranean region. The event will be an opportunity for these organizations to share initiatives, challenges, and proposals to find common interests and promote local and national engagement.
