GEO Matters - July 2017

United Nations Environment Programme (2017)

The goal of GEO for Youth is to firstly inform younger generations about the drivers of the environmental change, the current state of the environment and the future pathways we need to undertake to reach a sustainable future and achieve a healthy planet for future generations. Secondly, GEO for Youth should educate, raise environmental awareness and connect young generations across the world to raise their voice and deeply involve them in the decision-making processes in all regions. Past editions of GEO for Youth have facilitated cooperation between youth and other key stakeholders in working towards a sustainable future (e.g. GEO for Youth for Latin America and the Caribbean). In other words, GEO for Youth was conceived as a result of the awareness that Youth can make the difference!
