Fast Tracking Uganda’s Commitment to the 2030 Agenda

Youth Coalition for SDGs

Young people have been holding debates in schools under the umbrella of several organizations, including Open Space and Youth SDG Ambassadors. There have been projects targeting semi-urban private schools around Kampala where young people have been trained using non-formal pedagogical methods that make it easier for them to understand, engage with, and follow up or gain interest in the SDGs. Through the SDG awareness weeks, each year in October young people have been sharing their SDG-related innovations for support and mentorship by development partners. Young people have also launched an initiative known as One Million Youth One Million Solutions to identify young and talented innovators across all regions of Uganda for continuous mentorship to scale up their ideas. Young people were engaged during the VNR process polls asking specific questions aimed at assessing their understanding of selected youth-related SDGs.  A total of 25,247 young people responded to the polls.
