Description

About KIDsforSDGs

KIDsforSDGs is Asia’s leading community of SDG advocates across primary school, secondary school and university in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area. The founding team have businesses or organisations engaged with the World Economic Forum, UN Global Compact, UN ESCAP, World Humanitarian Forum and more International organisations. Through our UNITAR Youth Ambassador Asia Pacific Program, Young Changemaker Incubator program and more, we support youth to pursue tangible SDG action and develop their own SDG-oriented projects. 

Each youth is asked: “How can the UN SDGs accelerate our global recovery to build back broader, greener and stronger?” The KIDsforSDGs’ 1-3-7 Principle: 1 Area of SDG Leadership, 3 Sources of Innovation and 7 Stakeholders, are taught and applied. Majority of the student-led projects are on SDG 13: Climate Action, SDG 14: Life Below Water and SDG: 15 Life on Land. These range from: achieving net-zero, biodiversity, circular economy, climate advocacy and other nature-based solutions.

We are proud to say we adopt a truly inter-generational and multi-stakeholder approach through our ongoing engagements with schools, parents, teachers, NGOs, government bodies, think tanks and more, both locally, regionally and globally.
