On the eve of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development under the auspices of the General Assembly, to be held on 18-19 September 2023 (SDG Summit), on 29 August 2023, 26 young people gathered together to voice their vision for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) implementation in the Republic of Belarus.
The consultations of the SDG Youth Ambassadors, representatives of the UNICEF Adolescent Advisory Group, and volunteers were organized in the form of group discussions. Youth, based on their own decision and interests, were split into four groups around four SDG accelerator platforms: Green transition for inclusive and sustainable growth; Future generation orientation; Digital transformation and social innovation; Gender equitable society.
In addition, participants completed a poll on their vision on SDG progress in Belarus and youth involvement in SDG implementation, prepared by the United Nations Office of the Resident Coordinator in the Republic of Belarus.
Here you will find results of the poll “Youth vision for SDGs in Belarus”, groups discussions outcomes as well as possible next steps proposed by participants of the consultations.
