SDSN Youth in Northern Europe

“Empowering youth to create sustainable solutions.”

SDSN Youth in Northern Europe was launched in January 2017 as a regional network within the global SDSN Youth network. Our aim is to localize SDSN Youth’s global vision of empowering youth to create sustainable solutions. We do this by connecting and mobilizing the region’s youth actors from civil society, academia and the private sector, supporting their engagement and contribution to the implementation of the SDGs and educating the region’s young population about the SDGs.
