About the Young Leaders for the SDGs

Every two years, 17 young change-makers are recognized for their leadership and contribution to a more sustainable world

On September 19, 2016, the Office of the UN Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth unveiled the inaugural class of the Young Leaders for the Sustainable Development Goals – 17 young change-makers whose leadership is catalyzing the achievement of the Goals.

– Promote innovative ways of engaging their audiences and peers in the advocacy and realization of the Goals;
