The aim of the Young Visionaries Academy is to provide young people with the skills and tools they need to envisage the possible, plausible, society they want to live in, to create it using people-centered strategies, to take the necessary actions to change the current social structure, and to be leaders of the society they have created. The emphasis of the program therefore is on social innovations and transformation to create a better society, a better world, in which young people have a leading role in creating.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. In order to achieve these Goals by the target 2030, we must change our habits as a society, as a global community. The ChangeLeader Programme of the Young Visionaries Academy is an action taken in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
