Sustainable Development Goals in action

To achieve the SDGs, the international community will have to include young people as they work together to build a more sustainable future. For its 10th edition, EDD 2016 will be one of the first international conferences to address the way forward for this ambitious 2030 Agenda. The EDD 2016 forum will be shaped by the ‘5 Ps’ outlined in the preamble to the 2030 Agenda – People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership.
