Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 66

Recognizing the important role that youth can play in disseminating the SDGs’ core messages to the public at large, young people have been sensitized through seminars at academic campuses, hosted by a youth organization’s SDG Volunteer Ambassadors Programme....Moreover, a number of academic institutions have been set up to engage university students in research on community-level related to any of the SDGs. Such institutions also reach out to schools and colleges to educate younger students on the SDGs, highlighting interlinkages, promoting behavioural change for the SDGs and encouraging volunteerism. For instance, they engage youths in activities to promote a sense of civic responsibilities on issues critical for achieving specific SDGs – such as tree planting, controlling pollution and awareness raising.
