Youth 4 Global Goals is an AIESEC Initiative through which we aim to mobilize youth towards the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. Our initiative aims to educate youth about the SDGs and provide practical volunteering opportunities to unleash their potential while being an active world citizen. Our initiative focuses on three key points: Awareness 55% of youth are not aware of the Sustainable Development Goals, according to YouthSpeak Survey. By running advocacy campaigns we aim to reach every young person to know about the 17 goals and their impact by 2030. Understanding We help young people to understand their role and contribution to achieve the Goals. We do it through YouthSpeak Forums on global, national and local levels which engage delegates in creating solutions to contribute to the SDGs. Action We provide volunteering opportunities globally and locally to contribute to a cause you believe in. Annually, we facilitate 40.000 volunteering experiences in more 120+ countries and territories that contribute to the SDGs.   We believe young people are a part of the solution to create positive change in the world. This is an open call to become a Leader for the World. Find out more about Youth4GlobalGoals under youth4globagoals.org Follow us on social media under https://www.facebook.com/YouthForGlobalGoals

"Let’s get real” is Youth4GlobalGoals shoutout to reach young people with a message of seeing things as they actually are. We want to burst young people's bubble, let them know that life is not what it seems, at least not for all us, the 1.8 billion young people in the world. At the same time, we want to drive them to take action on the SDGs.  So what are you going to do about it?  #AIESEC #Youth4GG #LetsGetReal
