Youth Committee

Welcome to the Youth Committee Page of the first international academic conference on the Sustainable Development Goals "Why It Matters". Each voice, wherever they may be, is relevant and can answer the question Why It Matters, relating to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. Your support and suggestions are important to us and so we have created a youth committee representing local, domestic, and international subcommittees.
