The goal of this project, is to empower African youth to take action and create initiatives for sustainable development. By sharing their knowledge, they encourage young people aged 18 to 35, from all over Africa, to change their lifestyles; develop their own sustainable development innovations at local and national level! They aim to engage youth and to help them understand better, the Sustainable Development goals (SDG) and how they can contribute to the achievements through training on the SDGs.
This way, they encourage the African youth to create and develop their own innovations and contribute to the establishment of a sustainable lifestyle, at different levels, be it local or national. The project is implemented in local languages in various countries such as Cameroon, Nigeria, Kenya, Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Morocco, Algeria and so on, so that beneficiaries can truly understand the message and importance of the SDGs.
In the long run, Climate Smart Agriculture Youth Network would like to ensure that every member country rolls out the African Youth for the Sustainable Development Goals Training since it is a project domesticating SDG in local languages.
Youth aged 18-35 across Africa have a limited understanding of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), yet constitute over 70% of the total African population. Youth are creative and intelligent individuals who want to contribute towards making their society a better place for all. They need, however, information and knowledge to do so.
Climate Smart Agriculture Youth Network wants to provide them this necessary knowledge for a better future and created in 2015 the African Youth for the Sustainable Development Goals Training ( AYSDGT).
African Youth for the Sustainable Development Goals Training (AYSDGT) has permitted the translation of the Sustainable Development goals into 60 local languages, making them more accessible to people living in rural areas.
They also encourage the youth to take action and create initiatives, paving the way towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
The project is implemented in various countries in local languages so that beneficiaries can truly understand the message and importance of the SDGs. African Youth for the Sustainable Development Goals Training (AYSDGT) has an impact first and foremost on their first target, the young people living in 65 African countries.
Marginalized communities and people living with disabilities can also enjoy the training and get more familiar with the goals of sustainable development, to live a more sustainable life.
Low financial support has been overcome, through collaborative engagement and local partnerships. The fact that the project relies a lot on the cultural differences of each community, helped them to gain their trust and partnership.
