YUVA Sustainable Development Goals: Mauritius Youth Parliament, Session 4

YUVA is organising a forum on the “Sustainable Development Goals – 12 Goals to Transform Mauritius” with YUVANs, secondary school students, university students, government officials, NGO representatives and personalities from the corporate sector as participants.

In this context, YUVA invites you and officials of your organisation as participants on Friday 26 February 2016, from 09:00hr to noon at Municipality of Port Louis.

As YUVA notes, this year is a time for national action. From January 2016, YUVA adopts 12 Sustainable Development Goals to achieve extraordinary things in the next 10 years: end poverty, promote prosperity and well-being for all, and protect the island. These Sustainable Development Goals set a course to achieve these objectives – for people everywhere. This is a time to feel hopeful, not hopeless, about our national future.

This is an era of historic opportunity. We can be the first youth generation to end extreme poverty, the most determined youth generation in history to end injustice and inequality, and the last youth generation to be threatened by climate change. With the adoption of a new development agenda and sustainable development goals, we can set Mauritius on course for a better future. The Goals serve as YUVANs’ to-do list from January 2016 to December 2025. The Goals and targets will stimulate action over the next 10 years in areas of critical importance for Mauritius.

We rely on your collaboration and shall be pleased to have your presence for the Mauritius Youth Parliament‘s session 4.
