UN SDG Youth Training

Are you interested in climate action, reducing inequalities, peace and justice, eradicating poverty, clean energy, responsible consumption, sustainable economic growth, or working with the United Nations? Do you want to get involved in locally or internationally implementing these sustainable changes to help make the world a better place?

On October 4, 2017, IdeasXChange partnered with the Foundation for Environmental Stewardship to bring SDG Youth Training to students in the Lower Mainland.

IDX also collaborated closely with the UBC International Relations Student Association (IRSA), Political Science SA (PSSA), Model United Nations SA (MUNSA), and the Asia Pacific Youth Council.
