In 2015, the United Nations set out 17 Sustainable Development Goals, representing an ambitious agenda to end poverty, fight climate change, and tackle all forms of inequality by 2030. WAGGGS promoted these goals to members firstly during the International Day of Girl 2016, to build up and take action on the Goals that the girls are passionate about.
The theme of this year’s Summer Youth Programme is “For Her World”. We expect girls could be empowered to exhibit their potential and to become responsible world citizens; be happy and adventurous via meeting new friends; make pledge and action towards the UN Global Goals. I am confident that girls could create a better world in their way by putting their hands together.
Let us take our first step at this summer – For Your World!
