Mobilise the transformative power of the world’s young people

2030 Agenda UN

On July 19 the United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres told the eight-day High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development that mobilising the transformative power of the world’s young people is an important pathway to achieving sustainable development.

In September the UN will launch a strategy to support and engage young people.

“Education”, said Guterres,“ is essential – as a critical tool for empowerment, for advancing gender equality and decent work for all, and for changing the way we produce, consume and live.”
