Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 54

This is the reason why the World Wide Fund for Nature in Paraguay (WWF-Paraguay) and the SDG Commission Paraguay established a strategic partnership on 17 February 2020. They have since been working together on a work plan that will be based on three central components: (i) youth volunteering, which is key in joint strategies that support environmental preservation, diversity, and the fight against climate change; (ii) caring for forests; and (iii) supporting the dissemination and internalization of the SDGs, with emphasis on the goals directly related to the environment.

Paragraph 2, page 54

Pages 54-55

Create empowering spaces through youth volunteering, which is a key tool for the paradigm shift implied by the 2030 Agenda. Carry out joint activities that generate positive impact and raise environmental awareness among the public, with the collaboration and support of a network of volunteers that allows and encourages the involvement and empowerment of people in specific steps to care for the environment, such as Earth Hour and the expo of environmentally sustainable opportunities.
