Yucatán, México. 2022
Every year in the month of September, millions of people mobilize around the world to take individual and collective action to connect and inspire action for the Sustainable Development Goals. In Mérida, the “XSDG Week of Action” was organized by Youth Global Action (@youthglobalact). They join us at the #FlipTheScript campaign, by mobilizing youth to advocate for social and environmental sustainability, highlighting the local actions that are carried out to have a more just and inclusive society.
An event was held at the Great Museum of the Mayan World, a place of great importance that protects the ancestral vestiges of the Mayan culture. The act hosted different plenaries, talks, workshops and musical performances addressing the 17 SDGs in Mexico. It counted with the participation of more than 200 young people, enhancing their voice on issues of Climate Justice, inclusion of people with disabilities and the LGBT + community, Rights of migrants and Empowerment of women who inspire.
