Engage, Include, Empower: Youth Guidebook Launch (Youth Advisory Group, UNIDO)
Today’s population of our world is predominantly young. True sustainable industrial development can only be achieved when youth are included in the workforce, project design, policymaking and programme implementation and evaluation.
This inspiring and enlightening session will be focused on youth inclusion in sustainable industrial development as we celebrate the launch of our “Guidebook for Meaningful Youth Engagement in Industrial Development”, co-authored by the Youth Advisory Group (YAG), and edited by nominees from the SDG 7 Youth Constituency and YOUNGO as well as UNIDO personnel. This guidebook is designed to empower young individuals, educators, policymakers and industry leaders with the knowledge and tools needed to engage and collaborate effectively with youth and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
