This program is for students, activists, and lifelong learners of all ages, backgrounds, and nationalities who are currently or previously involved in SDG-related activities or have a strong desire to learn about sustainable development. Achieving the SDGs requires mobilization of young people through entrepreneurship, volunteering, research, education and other endeavors. Toward this aim, Peace Boat US is providing various scholarships under the “Youth for the SDGs” theme to encouragethe participation of youth in the SDGs and to give them the tools they need to work on the global scale. Sailing onboard Peace Boat, “Youth for the SDGs” scholars attend presentations, seminars, and workshops addressing the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Participating youth also enjoy being immersed in the onboard community with many opportunities to participate in other cultural, educational, and social activities and events. In ports, youth visit local NGOs and others who are working directly on SDG issues related to climate change, youth engagement, and policy-making. http://bit.ly/PeaceBoat-Report-2018-Summer
