Re-Imagining the Leave No One Behind pledge of the 2030 Agenda
March 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join VIDEA & BCCIC for our event Re-Imagining the Leave No One Behind pledge of the 2030 Agenda, organized as part of the Together | Ensemble conference.
The ‘Leave No One Behind’ (LNOB) pledge was adopted as a cross-cutting theme of the Sustainable Development Goals. This event presents a unique opportunity to consider innovative ways that youth deconstruct, decolonize, and reimagine the LNOB pledge in their research, outreach and advocacy. The event will act as a platform for powerful stories from youth in British Columbia, Canada, who face compounding and intersecting barriers which they resist, challenge and overcome in their everyday lives. Drawing on lived experience, the speakers will advocate for policy-makers and other stakeholders to move beyond performative tokenism to provide real, effective and meaningful opportunities for youth from marginalized and underrepresented communities to participate in policy-making processes and multi-stakeholder platforms in the context of the SDGs.
