When we think about young people in relation to the Agenda 2030, what often comes to mind is that they will be beneficiaries of the development goals. However, young people are proving time and time again that they are not just recipients of change but are driving change in their own right. They are active decision makers in the development process and are making huge contributions to co-create the world they want and need.
Girls’ Globe bloggers had the opportunity to meet with and speak to Girl Up Teen Advisors from who are committed to girls’ and women’s empowerment and working to support the empowerment of girls BY girls.
Some of the questions we explored with them include:
- How old they would be in 2030? How they hope the world would change by then?
- What do they think girls really need?
- Which of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) do they feel mostly strongly about?
- What will they be doing to advance the particular goal they feel strongly about?
We hope they will not only inspire you but give you hope in the implementers and successors of the development agenda.
