Youth: The fuel driving forward sustainable development

As the annual Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Youth Forum kicks off on 1 February, youth takes centre stage at UN headquarters in New York. In a two-day event, young leaders from around the world will discuss concrete commitments and actions to realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the national, regional and global levels. “Young people’s energy is an important asset for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. This energy will be key to fuelling our 15-year journey together,” said UN DESA’s Under-Secretary-General Mr. Wu Hongbo.
