Nigerian Youth SDGs Summit | Diplomacy Opportunities

The Nigerian Youth SDGs Summit aims to build a common understanding of the transformational opportunities the SDGs presents to Nigerian youth as well as fashion out innovative strategies for the successful realization of the goals in the country, by working with key stakeholders across the government, private sector, academia, civil society, religion and the media.

The event will be a high-level forum for young people and key stakeholders in the implementation of the global goals to discuss young people’s role in the implementation of the SDGs, by exploring global best practices in terms of innovative strategies for achieving successful youth engagement with the global goals.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is the international community’s ambitious response to the world’s most pressing and complex challenges. Young people played a key part in shaping the Agenda’s priorities and they will be indispensable in efforts to see to its achievement in the coming 14 years. The scale and scope of the ambition require particularly strong partnerships at every level with young people, who are already being engaged in making the SDGs a reality in Nigeria.

Objectives

  • Create a platform to effectively discuss the Sustainable Development Goals as it affects youth in Nigeria
  • Review holistically activities and programs which address the Global Goals for young people in Nigeria and establish workable strategies.
