Use your Youth Power

Stand with Eva. Use your Youth Power.

WHAT DO WE NEED

World leaders have signed up to Global Goals which promise to end poverty, inequality and climate change. To make sure leaders turn promises in to reality, we need the collective power of young people.

WHAT CAN YOU DO

Take action with Youth Power and join thousands of young people in making sure leaders turn their Global Goal promises into reality. Throughout the year we'll be supporting young people to hold their leaders to account, and to help launch the campaign we want you to do three things...

1. STAND WITH EVA

To kick-off Youth Power we are showcasing a young person who is already using her Youth Power to call on world leaders to make the Global Goals a reality - and asking you to stand in solidarity with her.

Eva and her friends wrote to their leaders asking for clean water at their school. They are still waiting. Take action and sign the petition to let the Tanzanian government know that you stand in solidarity with Eva - and young people like her around the world - and make sure they deliver on their promise to provide Global Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation.

Signed the petition? Make an even bigger impact - share the link with you friends and family so they can Stand With Eva too.

2. JOIN THE MOVEMENT

Become a Youth Power Champion and lead the global movement to turn the Global Goals promises into reality. You will be the first to receive campaign updates, have access to exclusive opportunities and get to connect with other Youth Power Champions around the world. If you're interested, please email youthpower@restlessdevelopment.org.

Tell the world about Youth Power by sharing the Youth Power message on your social media pages. We need the world to know that the Global Goals exist and that you'll be using your Youth Power to hold leaders to account.

3. WRITE TO YOUR DECISION MAKERS

Make sure that your decision makers know about the Global Goals and are committed to turning them from promises to reality. Write and ask what their plans are to implement the Goals using this template letter - how will they make the Global Goals a reality in your community?
