YOUTH FOR SDGs FORUM

The Youth For SDGs Forum was founded on the 5th of October 2017 during a national workshop on ‘Integrating the Youth in the Implementation of Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Agreement regime’. The platform will provide an opportunity to the Kenyan and African youth to spearhead innovative solutions to the challenges they face within national, regional and international contexts.
