IN THEIR OWN WORDS: (posted 2-2019) (updated 2-13-22)

Young people are the active agents of change in the One World government.


In an effort to bring the United Nations closer to young people, the Youth Dialogue welcomed young voices through interactive panel discussions and open mic where youth representatives of diverse backgrounds shared their ideas, needs and concerns on education, employment, and the prevention of radicalization and extremism.

Participants agreed that today’s young people are the SDG generation as the world cannot achieve the 2030 Agenda without engaging them in the decision…

Quality and inclusive education for all is key to fully realize everybody’s potential, to become active global citizens, and to prevent radicalization and violent extremism. It is important to adapt education and skills training to the local context, with a stronger focus on the blue and green economic development. Besides skills for the future job market, it is equally important to foster the soft skills of young people, including empathy, social values, and citizenship skills, which could work hand in hand with academic education.

In her video message to the participants, Ms. Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO, referred to the youth as “the present and the future” and reiterated UNESCO’s mandate. She confirmed that “education is the bedrock and one of the most transformational forces for eradicating poverty, mitigating climate change, and coping with the profound shifts driven by accelerating globalization and the fourth Industrial Revolution”. She emphasized that education is not only about creating “workers of the future”, but also about creating “global citizens of the future”, who “respect cultural diversity, care for the planet, and defend the development of human values”…

Guiding Principles for Supporting Young People as Critical Agents of Change in the 2030 Agenda

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) developed the Guiding Principles to enable development actors to meet the ambition of the 2030 Agenda and to recognize the role of young people as agents of change in the process. Development actors should systematically promote and invest in meaningful youth participation in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) implementation by strengthening their involvement in global, regional, national and local level processes as well as enhancing their substantive engagement at programme or project level. To support this, UNDP Youth-GPS and Restless Development, on behalf of the Inter-Agency Network on Youth Development (IANYD) working group on Youth and SDGs, has developed the Guiding Principles.

Guiding Principles for Supporting Young People as Critical Agents of Change in the 2030 Agenda

Young people played a crucial role in shaping the 2030 Agenda, which recognises them as “critical agents of change” and integrates their priorities and needs across the economic, environmental and social dimensions of development. Explicitly or implicitly, young people’s aspirations are embedded throughout the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their targets.

With the SDG implementation well underway, young people’s participation and empowerment, from the global to the local level, should be understood as both a means and an end in itself. Indeed, youth voices, actions and solutions, as well as their reach and willingness to influence decision-making, are all essential if sustainable development is to be achieved…

Sustainable Development Goal 4 and its targets

Seven Outcome Targets

4.1 Universal primary and secondary education

By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and effective learning outcomes

4.2 Early childhood development and universal pre-primary education

 By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care and pre-primary education so that they are ready for primary education

4.7 Education for sustainable development and global citizenship

By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and   appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development

The global indicator established for Target 4.7 measures the extent to which GCED and ESD, including gender equality and human rights, are mainstreamed in national education policies, curricula, teacher education and, student assessments. UNESCO receives and analyzes country reports used as data for this indicator.

GCED = Global Citizenship Education ESD = Education for Sustainable Development
