Young people at the forefront of sustainable development and a sustainable green transition

Brainstorming lab
Tuesday, June 15, 2021
11:45 to 13:00

Young people, as a driving force behind some of the most important development issues, are key actors in bringing new ideas and solutions to the most pressing problems due to their future-oriented perspective. However, their involvement in different economic, political, social and environmental aspects is often limited due to lack of opportunity. In this context, the session will be built around 4 concrete successful youth-led initiatives on the topics of marine and coastal ecosystems, organic as well as fair production along with climate and just transition that prove what youth can do for a green economy and a sustainable future. Under the leadership of the confirmed facilitators, the EDD`s audience will discuss youth’ s active and important role in sustainable development and how to reinforce their voice and leadership through concrete actions
