Building the movement of youth leaders to form actionable plans and projects for their respective countries and communities anchored in SDG 5 to accomplish all 17 SDG goals.
This event is a call to action for Youth to launch a series of regional summits. These youth-initiated national and community dialogues will focus work and formulate policies, plans, and projects at the national level to support community action and work on the SDG. We hope all nations will then be able to report positive results at the annual United Nations High-Level Political Forums on Sustainable Development Goals. Man Up Campaign will share their narrative and tools to support this movement.
Engage youth leaders in the development of locally-envisioned models of change that genuinely address SDGs through the youth and gender lens by solving the “Real Challenge” present in their nations and communities.
Mobilize youth and their intergenerational supporters within the community, bringing individuals together through shared interests and passion for achieving the SDGs that are most important in their community. We will demonstrate how “Gender-SMART” Man Up Campaign engagement framework will support youth leaders and partner organizations.
Achieve SDG goals by actualizing on one’s personal narrative the “Champions Journey” to facilitating inclusion, equality, and opportunity in efforts to leave no one behind.
Nurture the development of healthy masculinities, transforming communities to value inclusion, gender equality, opportunity and End Gender-Based Violence and create a culture of peace.
