In 2015, world leaders from 193 countries agreed to 17 Global Goals that would build a better future for everyone. However, the Global Goals can only be made a reality if there is a collective effort to achieving the targets especially with young people at the fore. Yet, few young people know how they can contribute to sustaining their future.
Hence, with the aim of empowering a new generation with the skills and capacity to address challenges their nations and the world faces, United for 2030 seeks to bring young people together to represent their nations in the Citizens Assembly to advocate for change and advancing the Global goals.
The challenge is organized by the ‘We Make Change’ community in partnership with The International Development House and the United Nations Association Westminster Young Professionals.
The Citizens Assembly is starting in 20 countries across the world including Nigeria. Going forward, other countries of the world will be included.
Application is currently open and the assembly begins January 2019.
- People aged between 18-35 apply to be one of five young people representing their country in the United For 2030 Citizens Assembly.
- Successful applicants take part in a 12 month programme where they create a project to address challenges their nation faces.
- The representatives from each nation pitch their project at the United For 2030 Summit to people and organisations from all over the world.
DEADLINE: December 17, 2018
