As we all know young peoples are the leaders of tomorrow and are already in the game of changing the world. United Nations recognized young people as a driven force of achieving SDG goals by 2030. Therefore, we need to encourage and empower young people as a change makers of the world.
Accordingly, CED Sri Lanka conducted 18 district level awareness programs on SDGs and SDG4 for youths who are currently engaging in Vocational Training Institutes (VTI), universities and in addition to that school leavers. These training workshops were organized by CED district coordinators with the help of member organizations of the district. Through this awareness workshop CED Sri Lanka was able to reach around 1000 youth and to create a platform to discuss the factors preventing their greater access to and participation in basic and higher education, basic skills programs and engagement of employment.
