ONE MILLION SDG SOLUTIONS INNOVATION CHALLENGE FOR YOUTH IN UGANDA

The Government of Uganda and the United Nations in Uganda are working with the Youth Coalition for SDGs to undertake the One Million SDGs Solutions Innovation Challenge. The overall objective of One Million SDG Solutions from Youth in Uganda Innovation Challenge is to identify and mobilize Ugandan youth with solutions that are changing lives in order to accelerate the achievement of the SDGs. This will happen simultaneously with popularization of the 2030 Agenda at national and local levels, to mobilize, empower and motivate one million young people in Uganda to meaningfully join the actions and discussions geared towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in the Decade of Action. 

 

The United Nations is marking its 75th anniversary at a time of great challenge, including the worst global health crisis in its history. Will it bring the world closer together? The youth have a major role to play in how the future plays out. Your views can make a difference. Join the conversation. Share your thoughts: https://un75.online/?lang=eng





Youth and the SDGs

Far from being mere beneficiaries of the 2030 Agenda, young people have been active architects in its development and continue to be engaged in the frameworks and processes that support its implementation, follow-up and review. The adoption of the 2030 Agenda represented the culmination of an extensive three-year process involving Member States and civil society, including youth organizations, in the development of specific goals and targets and marked the beginning of a 15-year journey to achieve sustainable development by 2030.Uganda adopted the National Youth Policy in 2001, with the specific goal of enhancing the economic contributions of youth. The policy was a reaction to worsening youth conditions, where an increase in rural to urban youth migration was not accompanied by job creation.
