Global Young Voices’ mission is to give a voice to young people, in order to promote the values of multi-culture, social inclusion and internationality. This new project with our corporate partner RadiciGroup  represents for us a way to give special value to our mission. In fact, through this initiative, we want to give visibility to your stories and do our part in raising awareness about the United Nations 17 sustainable development goals among young people. Confident that we will receive many applications, I offer you an additional push to start acting to make a difference:

“There is no ‘Plan B’ because we do not have a ‘Planet B.’ We have to work and galvanize our action. Thanks you for your action and your power to change.”

CLOSING

We have come to the end of our competition “GYV SDGs Cup” and we are happy to announce the winner: Samuel Teah Wantoe with his story on environmental preservation in Liberia. We would also like to take a minute to thank everyone who has taken part in the competition and contributed to the realization and success of this project.

A special “thank you” goes to our sponsor RadiciGroup, that has supported us for the third year in a row in making the sustainability project a reality. We thank all the youths that have taken the time to submit their applications for showing us concrete examples of commitment in the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals. We thank our readers because, with their engagement, they allowed the stories in competition to gain more and more visibility. Last but not least, we want to thank ourselves for the passion, the perseverance and the creativity with which we consistently put ourselves out there to bring awareness within the young generations on how important it is to take action for the realization of a more sustainable world.

Before we say goodbye, we want to share with you, who are the true reason of our success, the incredible results achieved: hundreds of submissions received from all continents; hundreds of thousands of millennials reached through posts, videos and articles. For its positive impact, GYV SDGs Cup was awarded amongst the most innovative projects by the competition “Youth in Action for Sustainable Development Goals”, supported by important foundations and companies, such as Microsoft.

However, this is not a goodbye; it’s a see you soon with a new project, and we hope you will keep following us, numerous as always!
