Generations Club 2017

We live in a world where a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy prosperity, had to be launched to allow future generations to live in the very same planet we have lived and are currently living in.

The 25th of September 2015, more than 150 world leaders gathered in New York to adopt the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to collaborate towards 17 global aims, also known as, Sustainable Development Goals. “We are the last generations which can head off the worst effect of climate change and the first generation with the wealth and knowledge to eradicate poverty,” said Helen Clark, former administrator of the United Nations.

We, as young people in the world, must take responsibility as well as any other citizen, institution, and company in the world, to support this call to action and ensure a bright future for the people to come. Youth NGOs, like JADE, are in a position where they can lead and influence an increasing number of young people to shift their mindset and look towards a more sustainable approach to their daily life. Whether this means creating more entrepreneurial ventures or implementing sustainable ideas in institutions and companies, it is pivotal that our generation devotes to these causes from a very early age.
