Convening the Future Changemakers
Envoys is proud to host the Student SDG Summit on November 7th and 8th, 2020, for innovative students to take part in designing, testing, and iterating new ways to accelerate progress towards making substantial change in their communities.
The Sustainable Development Goals provide a blueprint for the transition to a healthier planet and a more just world — for present and future generations. With concrete targets, the Goals aim to end poverty and hunger, expand access to health, education, justice and jobs, promote inclusive and sustained economic growth, while protecting our planet from environmental degradation.
Action is producing results, but the worldwide pandemic requires a rededication of efforts to make positive change. Conflict, climate change, lack of access to essential health services, growing inequalities and significant financing gaps have limited the impact of global efforts. The people left behind continue to suffer the most, including those in small island developing states, least developed countries and landlocked developing countries.
Over the course of 2 days, cohorts of students from around the world will gain inspiration from expert speakers and engage together in a virtual collaboration.
This program is designed for students aged 14-18. Teams of students joining this summit will be directly engaged in developing ways to accelerate progress towards realizing the SDGs on local, national, and global levels, presenting their projects to UN Youth Observer Dustin Liu.
This is a student-driven event, facilitated by Envoys. While educators are welcome to observe, student groups do not need to be accompanied by a faculty member to attend!
