Youth Together For Better Future
The B40 Young City Representatives Summit program has been prepared on the basis of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Sustainable development is meeting the needs of today without compromising the needs of tomorrow. This means that sufficient resources for future generations must be planned for today. The most important element of this planning is future generations. The most important issue considered in the B40 Young City Representatives Summit program is to raise awareness about the importance and role of youngs in realizing Sustainable Development Goals.
Therefore the B40 Young City Representatives Summit program has been prepared with the motto “Youth Together For Better Future”. Young City Representatives are leaders of change needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals to improve people’s lives and the health of the planet. Young City Representatives will have a say in the planning of the future by proposing innovative solutions, inspiring change and adding dynamism.
