We've prioritized 6 of the SDGs, these are the Common Agreed Programs (CAPs).

U.N. SDGs

The World Youth Group endorses and supports the Sustainable Development Goals aimed at transforming our world by 2030 in accordance with United Nations General Assembly Resolution A/RES/70/1, adopted on 25 September 2015 entitled: “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Read more here. Below are the six SDGs that we've agreed to take action on.

Good Health and Wellbeing
Health is Wealth. The World Youth Group considers SDG-3 as fundamental to human wellbeing. This is especially the case of youth and students: WHO reports that suicide is now the second leading cause of death among the aged 15-29. Of this 79% occur in countries deemed low-to-middle-income. The World Youth Group pledges to allocate considerable resources to address this spike in human misery, recognizing that greater attention is needed now more than ever.
Climate Action
Climate Change is a reality and acknowledged to pose a serious existential threat to our planet and anything that lives. Overwhelming scientific evidence indicates that the situation is growing dire by the day and must be addressed with urgency. It is also true that the youths of today are the world leaders of tomorrow, and some regions of the world including developing countries such as in Africa host highest youthful populations with increasing growth rates.
Quality Education
Guided also by the resolution to commemorate the International Day of Education (A/RES/73/25), the World Youth Group upholds SDG 4 as its single overarching guiding principle. In particular, stresses the need for social and civic education that helps foster generations with a firm understanding of their society and its place within the world. The World Youth Group seeks to play a role to assist in this regard and ensure that the UN Agenda 2030 exceeds in performance achievements through this goal and its targets and indicators by 2030.
Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
Sustainable development and other social endeavors cannot be realized without durable global peace and stability. The World Youth Group's vision for a peaceful society is framed in the belief that it possible only if we choose to learn from each other, as much of unrest and tension in the world is directly built on a lack of understanding of cultures different from our own.
Gender Equality
Gender equality is a growing concern around the world, and rightly so The World Youth Group staunchly supports the United Nations and all UN Member States' efforts to bridge any disparities between genders. The World Youth Group, therefore, supports all approaches and solutions aimed at redressing all forms of gender inequality especially in ensuring that academic. Institutions and curriculums serve to create broader societal impact.
Partnerships For The Goals
The World Youth Group believes that collective contribution and inclusivity through public-private-partnerships (PPPs) will strengthen implementing the Sustainable Development Goals. The growing buy-in in The World Youth Group initiative by Permanent Missions of interested United Nations Member States to support an initiative conceived by non-government entities is one such apt example of their belief on the need to work together with other stakeholders to achieve the fundamental objectives with a collective purpose to implementation of the SDGs.

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF
EDUCATION

"Without inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong opportunities for all, countries will not succeed in achieving gender equality and breaking the cycle of poverty that is leaving millions of children, youth and adults behind."

Through the respective constituencies of the youths, students and their leaders, The World Youth Group will utilize the commemoration of January 24th globally to dedicate events that inform and educate "the people" about the role of the United Nations in global development. With the guidance and in collaboration with the Advisory Board, The World Youth Group will further collaborate with other interested UN Member States to ensure that the International The World Youth Group 6 Day of Education (IDE) on the 24th of January is not only observed at the United Nations Headquarters but globally and across continents. 29. Amongst other means, activities will include the creation of a student driven annual focus for research and development to feed into the commemoration of the IDE, and each year would have a separate theme.
