In 2012, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) to mobilise global scientific and technological expertise to promote practical problem solving for sustainable development, including the design and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at local, national and global scales.
In 2015, the SDSN launched its official youth initiative (SDSN Youth) to empower youth globally to create sustainable development solutions.
SDSN Youth aims to:
1. Educate young people about the SDGs and create pathways for achieving them.
2. Connect young people globally to exchange ideas, share experiences and collaborate to achieve the SDGs.
3. Support young people in the creation and scaling of innovative solutions for the SDGs.
