In December 2015, AIESEC’s young global leaders and representatives from its 126 countries and territories gathered at the United Nations Headquarters to promote and drive youth participation in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by creating Youth 4 Global Goals initiative. Youth 4 Global Goals is an AIESEC Initiative through which we aim to mobilize youth towards the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. Our initiative aims to educate youth about the SDGs and provide practical volunteering opportunities to unleash their potential while being an active world citizen.

Reduce inequality within and among countries.

Issue in Hong Kong | Ethnics Minorities

Hong Kong has been universally acknowledged as an international hub with confluences of cultures. Walking around in Hong Kong, you would see people from different cultures and backgrounds, while we still see lots of news reported the discrimination phenomenon in workplace and schools. The recent movie ‘Still Human’ exactly illustrated the unfairness of the society, yet we all shall still have their rights to live their vibrant life with dreams without discrimination.

How can YOU raise the awareness of the rights of ethnic minorities? What can YOU do to support them?

Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

Issue in Hong Kong | Traditional Art and Culture

Put down your phone and walk around Hong Kong, have you spotted any differences that are changing or disappearing nowadays?

When it comes to the speciality of Hong Kong, people are always linked with neon signs. These signs appeared in varies stores and buildings of Hong Kong in the past. They are the culture, the art, and the signs of Hong Kong. However, due to the advancement of technology and strict installing limitations from the Government, neon signs started to disappear and are replaced by the LED lights. The city becomes dazzling and are lack of mysterious and warmth. Losing the collective visual memories seems like losing some of our emotions and memories.

What can YOU do to save our collective memories? How can YOU make the society, art and culture more SUSTAINABLE?

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.

Issue in Hong Kong | Sustainable Environment

Hong Kong maybe considered as one of the richest economies in the world, but its development also triggers a large change in people’s living styles and consumption patterns. For example, the excessive amount of leftovers and unconsumed food, over extraction in natural resources, serious damage in animals’ habitats, and over utilisation in energy. Every irresponsible consumption and production may lead to a serious damage to our earth. If you would like to avoid seeing this sick earth with the increased numbers of endangered species, global warming, disgusting spells in land pollution, let us be a responsible citizen from now on.

Are YOU sure to stay remains? What can YOU do to save our FUTURE GENERATION?

Our Participants Testimonials

It changed my perspective of my role in society.

After DSE, I was very lost - I did not know what I could do if I failed in the exam and could not take my preferred programmes. In the conference, I realised that I am more than a DSE-taker. I know more about my values, who I am, and more importantly, what my dreams really are.

A life-changing journey

As a participant of YS16 and an organising committee in YS17, YS has completely changed me. From an introvert who is not opening himself to the community, I have learnt through YS to be social-conscious, to be a team player, and to stay passionate in life. "There's always something to learn" is my greatest learning in my two years of YS experience.

Once-in-a-lifetime experience.

YS is a place where you would absorb new knowledge, meet friends with mutual interest under a harmonious environment. The sense of accomplishment through completing a project together, and being recognised, was certainly an experience of a lifetime.
