The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network – Nigeria SDG Advocate Programme is a training that will allow the advocates to deepen their understanding of the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), represent the project and lead transformative change in their communities and Nigeria at large.
It seeks to offer youths between the ages of 18-35 years an opportunity to become one of Nigeria’s SDGs advocates, supporting them in the achievement of the SDGs across the 36 states in Nigeria. It promotes the active participation of youths and creation of long-lasting change in their communities or immediate environments whilst also contributing to the global goals.
