SDSN Youth Mediterranean has just released the First Edition of the Mediterranean Youth Solutions Report 2021
The Report has been prepared by SDSN Youth Mediterranean, the regional team of volunteers of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) – Youth initiative, in collaboration with the UNEP/MAP–Barcelona Convention Secretariat and Union for the Mediterranean (UfM).
Inspired by the Youth Solutions Report annually published by SDSN Youth since 2017, the Mediterranean edition, presenting 29 sustainable and innovative solution projects, underlines the strategic role played by young people in a unique culturally and politically multifaceted region.
The Mediterranean Youth Solutions Report aims to highlight and promote the proactive behavior of young stakeholders, to support their work and create a network of sustainable development advocates, well knowledgeable and already prepared to take action.
The projects displayed in the publication, 23 from Mediterranean countries and 6 from non-Mediterranean States, have been realized during the last year by youth university societies, research institutes, NGOs, and other youth-focused organizations with experience in one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
According to the main challenges faced by each project, all proposals have been organized into 4 thematic areas, which are:
- Education, training and awareness;
- Nature conservation;
- Youth action and health, and
- Sustainable business
A comprehensive analysis of their structure and contents has been also laid out, focusing on the problems, solutions, and impacts on specific Goals.
