SDSN Youth


SDSN Belgium engages with SDSN Youth to maximize awareness, problem solving and action on the Sustainable Development Goals.

SDSN Youth educates young people about the SDGs and provides opportunities for them to pioneer innovative solutions to address the world’s biggest challenges!

We have the platform for young people to connect, collaborate and integrate their ideas and perspectives into national and regional pathways for the implementation of the SDGs.

Our priorities:

  • we educate young people about the SDGs and create pathways for achieving them.
  • we connect young people globally to exchange ideas, share experiences and collaborate to achieve the SDGs
  • we support young people in the creation and scaling of innovative solutions for the SDGs
The Youth Solutions Program promotes and offers support to innovative projects tackling the world’s toughest challenges around the SDGs, all led by young professionals and students. These projects range from small businesses to charities, research, and educational programs to advocacy campaigns. The program connects innovators with mentors and therefore provide them the necessary skills and connections to develop their solutions.
The Global Schools Program provides the necessary tools and resources for schools and teachers to educate their students on the SDGs, with a current focus on K-12 schools. Working with educators, the program aims to transform learning environments globally and make schools the hubs of education and leadership on the SDGs, ultimately empowering students to prioritize sustainable development in their lifestyles, behaviors, education and professional careers.
The Local Pathways Fellowship is a training program and peer-to-peer learning network that provides young urban innovators with the tools to design and implement programs that champion local pathways to sustainable development. This year, it brings together 70 early career thought leaders, urban planners, researchers and activists from over 50 cities around the world. Throughout a 12-month journey, they exchange knowledge and ideas with leading urban development experts, grassroots organizers, and academics.
The SDG Students Program creates spaces on universities where students with no prior experience or engagements with the SDGs can come together to learn about, engage with, and take action on the SDGs. The program aims to groom the average student into a supporter of the SDGs, such that they will carry the importance of sustainability into their future work upon graduation. The semi-physical, semi-virtual space will be hosted at local universities and Facebook Workplace, where Hub Members can connect and interact with others from around the world, as well as with SDSN Youth stakeholders from different programs.


  • Arts TwentyThirty Through our online network, Arts Twenty Thirty artists can exchange ideas, share lessons learned, and offer opportunities to collaborate, using art to work express the many aspects of sustainable development. We then showcase selected pieces online and at international events to promote local discussion, learning, and action on the SDGs.
  • Food and Youth The potential of young people worldwide to deliver positive change in the agri-food sector in support of the Sustainable Development Goals can not be underestimated. Food and Youth facilitates the active engagement of young people in the transformation of the agri-food sector for sustainable development.
  • My Data Initiative Mobilizing Youth on Data for Action and Transformation in Africa (MY DATA) is an emerging network and community of practice that brings together organizations and initiatives working to directly engage and mobilize youth in data generation, advocacy, and leadership to advance the Sustainable Development Goals in Africa by 2030.
  • Youth, Peace and Security Our thematic paper investigates the impact of climate change on the security and development prospects of young people across the globe, as well as examining how ownership of the Sustainable Development Goals could promote the case for youth-led development.
