YOUTH INNOVATION IN THE DECADE OF ACTION: STORIES FROM UNIVERSITIES

The topic of the SDG Conference Bergen 2022 is Ways of Knowing, Modes of Living: Dialogues across a fragmented Earth for the 2030 Agenda. The challenges and existential threats that underlie the Sustainable Development Goals, demand action. How do we find new and innovative ways to develop sustainable actions rooted in the SDGs? Within this Conference, Day Zero will be an academic festival with creative spaces (workshops, exhibitions, debates, etc.) presenting work of relevance to the SDGs. For Day Zero, the UN Academic Impact (UNAI) has organized this event:

Objective: The event aims at highlighting the critical role of younger generations in addressing local and global challenges, particularly in these complex times derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, to advance the 2030 Agenda with innovative ideas and solutions. Students have been role models on campuses and beyond, to show how small-scale projects can make a significant contribution to the SDGs. We will hear stories from students at different UNAI member institutions and alumni of the UNAI-MCN Fellowship Program.
