Far from being mere beneficiaries of the 2030 Agenda, young people have been active architects in its development and continue to be engaged in the frameworks and processes that support its implementation, follow-up and review. Today, there are 1.2 billion young people aged 15 to 24 years, accounting for 16 per cent of the global population. Also Young people today make up the largest youth population in history (1.2B people and 16% of the world’s population). The active engagement of youth in sustainable development efforts is central to achieving sustainable, inclusive and stable societies by the target date, and to averting the worst threats and challenges to sustainable development, including the impacts of climate change, unemployment, poverty, gender inequality, conflict, and migration.
