We partnered with the National Economic and Social Development Council to kick off “Youth In Charge | SDGs In Action” platform.
We believe that young people must be in charge of creating the future in which they will live and thrive and that sustainable development on a large scale is NOT possible without their constructive inputs and collective action. Our corporate partners (SCG, Toyota, Bangchak, Mitr Phol, True, CP, and Betagro) and honorable SDGs Champions joined us and showed their commitment to having “Youth In Charge” of sustainable development.
YIC is an open integrative platform for youth, ages 15-22, to engage constructively with leaders and decision makers on various agendas that are important to the future of younger generations, particularly around advancing SDGs. YIC has 2 key components:
YIC Academy: For young people to learn from champions of various SDGs and, most importantly, link SDGs to many career possibilities for their future.
YIC Symposiums: For various youth groups to share/exchange school-/area-based SDGs initiatives, voice, and propose public policies on behalf of their generation.
Inputs from Youth Symposiums will be wrapped up and proposed to leaders and decision makers at our Annual YIC Summit, set to take place at the end of 2021.
