On the evening of June 4, 2015 in Paris, the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) will launch a new initiative, SDSN Youth (SDSN-Y). SDSN-Y works to empower youth globally to create sustainable development solutions, and its launch will serve as a timely occasion to reflect on the role of youth in implementing the SDGs.
The launch event will feature addresses from the following eminent leaders in sustainable development: Tarja Halonen, Former President of Finland; Johan Rockström, Executive Director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre; Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN); and Laurence Tubiana, Special Representative for the 2015 Paris Climate Conference and French Ambassador for Climate Change. The presentations will be followed by an audience Q&A and reception. The event is free and open to the public, though RSVP is required at sdsn-y.eventbrite.com.
