The Young Leaders for the Sustainable Development Goals

Last September, the United Nations announced the inaugural class of the Young Leaders for the Sustainable Development Goals – 17 young change-makers whose leadership is catalyzing the achievement of the Goals. From food to fashion to finance, the Young Leaders come from many different backgrounds, represent every region in the world and help activate young people in support of the Goals. The call for applications for the next class of Young Leaders of SDGs is now live!

Convened by the Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, these Young Leaders are recognized for their leadership and contribution to a more sustainable world. The Young Leaders come together as a community to support efforts to engage young people in the realization of the SDGs both through strategic opportunities with the UN and through their existing initiatives, platforms and networks. Young Leaders will be expected to actively support one or more of the following objectives:

  • Advocate for the Goals, in ways most accessible and relatable to young people across different contexts;
  • Promote innovative ways of engaging their audiences and peers in the advocacy and realization of the Goals;
  • Contribute to a brain trust of young leaders supporting the UN and partners for key moments and initiatives related to the Goals.

Each year, a new “Class” will be nominated through an open call for nominations and assessed according to robust selection criteria by a diverse selection committee. 

The Young Leaders Initiative is powered by the Office of the UN Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth, in collaboration with our amazing partners. The Initiative is part of the Global Youth Partnership for Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015 and housed in the Envoy's Office. 


Deadline for application 3 November 2017.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I am Mr. Shah Faisal Khan from Pakistan, 37 years old, single. I like to work for empower women. Every country has different rules and regulation and life style changed then other women in world. Men and Women have equal rights by law, and we should need to protect our women and give them empowerment in society because women role in our society as mother/sister and wife. 

    The women empowerment is must in education system, scientific, cultural and health. Men has also should be encourage their women in every field of work in which they have interest. The Men and women role by relation as tire of vehicle that if the car have no tire then it cannot run. We should also to focus and have need to more research the health of mother and child. In Africa and south Asia if we look the health of women so mostly have not good health and also food problems, poverty and financially they are much weak that most have mortality rates of children and mother have also unhealthy condition.  

    This is a superb social website page that work for women empowerment globally and anyone can mention their ideas freely to develop the women empowerment and protection in society and I like to all my friends and relatives to share this link.

    Yours truly

    Mr. Shah Faisal Khan
