Building Youth Partnership Opportunities to Advance 
UN Sustainable Development Goals for Education, Peace & Innovation 
You can help innovate solutions to the world’s biggest problems.
Together we can innovate much faster if we are building on the ideas of not one but many.
Supporting Youth Coalitions in Advancing SDGs

The world is now home to more than 1.8 billion young people. Yet more often than not, these expected key stakeholders of today's global challenges are pushed to the periphery in key policy-making areas of education, peace, sustainability, and global citizenship. 


ERASMUS + Global Partnerships (EGP) espouses the role of partnerships and open innovations within youth and youth-focused organizations to advance and accelerate SDGs.


The conference will bring together youth organizations, start-ups, and researchers to facilitate young people in building coalitions, exchanging perspectives in a cross and inter-disciplinary setting, and developing sustainable grassroots solutions for their communities.
