Asia Pacific SDG Challenge

Youth for the Goals - SDG 13: Climate Action and SDG 14: Life Below Water

Led by the Asia-Pacific regional youth leaders, the first preliminary Asia-Pacific Youth SDG Challenge commenced on 1 February 2018 and focused on the Sustainable Development Goals, specifically Goal 13 Climate Action and Goal 14 Life Below Water. We invited all Asia-Pacific Youth to get involved to make a difference in their local community with on-ground projects that address their community needs and the goals. Collectively we have engaged with approximately 10,000 youth across the global and have worked on 20 youth-led projects in Malayasia, Vietnam, South Korea, India, Indonesia, Bogotá and Australia. This virtual youth summit is to celebrate these achievements and hear from the youth who participated.

Please join us for this fully online, free event to celebrate the Youth SDG Challenge 2018. Use the #apvirtualsummit to share your photos and videos during our live stream.
