VNR Lab 3: Inclusive sustainable development: youth, sport and the 2030 Agenda
Wednesday, 7 July 2021
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Virtually (held New York time)


This lab will examine progress on how youth involvement in sport can contribute to promoting inclusive sustainable development and peace and provide a platform for Members States, and other national and regional stakeholders, to share their experiences - both successes and challenges – about supporting youth empowerment through sport programmes. It will also explore the most appropriate strategies to effectively build young people’s positive life skills and inclusive social values through sport and towards the implementation of the 2030 Agenda by providing youth a platform to highlight how they view sport as an enabling mechanism to bring about positive social change. Finally, it will assess any barriers faced by Member States in successfully reaching youth in their communities and provide recommendations to overcome these challenges. Organized by the Division for Inclusive Social Development, DESA.
