The International Youth Forum team is an esteemed passionate young people from around the world who are advocating on the topic of human rights and sustainable development goals, being determined to the change the world and secure a better future for the coming generations. It was started with the thought that Another World is needed and together it’s possible.

Sustainable Development Goals

Thanks to millions of people taking action and a massive global effort, we have already made real progress. The number of people living in poverty has fallen to less than half of its 1990 level. Over two billion people gained access to better drinking water. The share of slum dwellers living in cities fell, improving the lives of at least 100 million people!

Yet, 1.4 billion people still live in extreme poverty. Every 4 seconds a child dies from preventable causes and over 900 million, particularly women and young people, suffer from chronic hunger. Meanwhile our population is set to rise to 9.5 billion by 2050 and the food system is at breaking point.

Climate change threatens to destroy the lives of millions more and undo all the progress we have made so far. Inequality is growing everywhere and human rights are being undermined in the worlds most fragile and conflict affected countries while the world economy continues to falter.

Our Experts say

IYF engagement and Youth partnership is always the essential step toward accomplishing sustainable development goals. With this objective this year international youth day celebration was with the slogan ‘Safe Spaces for Youth’.
