If we’re going to solve the world’s toughest problems, every day counts.
At the start of this year, world leaders committed to the Global Goals to end poverty, inequalities and climate change. We as young people have pledged to use our Youth Power to make sure those promises are turned into reality.
So what we want to know is, what’s the plan? Let’s work together with our world leaders to make sure these Global Goals get off to the best start. Every country should have a plan for how they will make the Global Goals a reality.
Show your #YouthPower and get your leaders to commit to making a plan. You can use this template letter to write to your leaders and ask them what their plan is for the Global Goals.
