Call for applications for young leaders, 18-29 years old, who are actively working to contribute to the Education 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with youth/student networks.
The SDG4Youth network aims to include young education activists in shaping global education policies through engagement in the multi-stakeholder SDG 4 Education 2030 High-level Steering Committee, while establishing the network as an accountable and representative youth and students platform.
Around the world, young people are driving change and claiming fundamental freedoms and rights; improving conditions for them and their communities; as well as opportunities to learn, work and participate in decisions that affect them. Young people have placed education as a key concern and challenge affecting their lives.
Creating an SDG4Youth Network was born out of the recognition that young people are key partners and actors in creating a better future for all through education in their countries and communities and should have an equal seat at the decision-making table. As such, SDG4Youth will have a strong emphasis on co-creation with youth and students, by involving young people from the start of the initiative network to shape on how they would like to see the network developed, operationalized and sustained. The network will also forge strong links with the regional youth and education initiatives and strategies.
