The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is expected to shape the world’s common future for at least the next 15 years. With half of the world under the age of 30, it is crucial that young people are put at the forefront of change and development.
In Nepal, never before have there been so many young people. Right now Nepal has the largest productive youth population compared to the dependent population in its history. Therefore young people have the right to participate in decision-making processes at all levels. They have a crucial role to play in the implementation of the SDGs.
Because social change often starts with small individual steps, this booklet has been prepared to help young people in Nepal understand the SDGs and how the roles they plan can add up if they all do their part. It was produced by UNFPA and YUWA.
